Here we sharing some cybersecurity predictions or priorities for 2021
Cybersecurity predictions or priorities
- Organizations are used to stretching their budgets to fit their security and operational needs, but the pandemic upped the ante by throwing in an immediate shift to remote work that required support.
- As chaotic as 2020 sometimes felt, 2021 shouldn’t be as disruptive as businesses settle into their next normal.
- Organizations should enforce remote security standards, including upgraded router security, to prevent data breaches.
- Phishing attacks are both the most prevalent and most effective types of attacks and that is especially true this year as the Verizon Business 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report found that users are three times more likely to click on a phishing link and then enter their credentials than they were pre-COVID. Given that many businesses migrated to new SaaS platforms this year, there are a number of new alerts and blind spots that an organization’s security team may not have prepared employees to handle.
- User-based attacks take advantage of those miscues and can make businesses pay dearly.
- This is especially important for businesses that haven’t fully wrapped their heads around the new challenges and responsibilities of their new SaaS and cloud platforms.
- A cybersecurity partner can help businesses better understand their IT infrastructure, identify vulnerabilities, and monitor for cyberattacks.
- While the rough seas may be behind businesses, now is not the time to rest.
- It’s important for security leaders to remain diligent about their company’s security posture and adapt to the latest state of the world.
Focusing on people, processes, and technology is not only the foundation to a solid cybersecurity strategy but also absolutely critical at a time where workers have never been further from security teams’ protection.
