5 TRENDS THAT NEED CLOSE MONITORING!
Every year cyber security is adopting advanced processes to secure million worth of data and credentials. The infrastructure of businesses is interconnected and heavily interdependent. Alongside there are many potential physical and operational security factors that increase the system resilience and enhanced cyber security.
Many advanced trends define control and mechanisms to assist in protecting the firmware against security threats.
The fast adoption of digital technologies and services, as well as efficiency drivers, means that the traditional hard separation between these two environments is being bridged. These trends will only increase through the adoption of modern technologies.
Following are the five trends that require close monitoring in cyber security.
(1) MONITORING FROM HOME
With the entire world going towards digitalising every market process monitoring cyber security threats has become important than ever. Since remote work has become permanent, close monitoring should include solidifying and updation of the security controls, processes and technologies on all the processes that have become remote in the wake of covid-19.
To ease the functionality of monitoring make sure your security team has collaboration tools to communicate with each other and do business functions together irrespective of being distanced. This remote work from home trend needs extra monitoring and care concerning the rising cyber security problems in the market industry.
Cybersecurity experts are not in many numbers in the industry today. Because cyber security is a tedious. Hence cyber security professionals will always be less in numbers and short supply. Hence automation is necessary to bolster the cyber security program. Technologies such as AI and Machine learning are pretty much in trend now to detect any sort of cyber security threat.
Therefore, monitoring this trend will definitely lead to greater potential in cyber security.
(3) ZERO-TRUST PRINCIPLES ADOPTION
In this era, it’s important to see trustworthiness of each device separately. And along with devices you should also cross check user services and so for granting it access. Using zero-trust policy you can give entity to access the only resources it needs. For example, if you get buy-in from the security architects, cloud engineers, network administrators, developers and much more.
(4) IMPROVE RESPONSE CAPABILITIES
Response is the most important element in any business infrastructure. Without proper response you’ll end up attracting large cyber security threats. This trend too needs keen monitoring to improve your ability to respond to large scale ransomware.
If this trend is successfully monitored then you can prepare to handle ransom demands before they’re made. Encourage incident responders to work with the system admins, legal counsel, PR and other departments to ensure the responses and services are moving smoothly and they’re restored quickly.
(5) UNDERSTAND AND SPOT SUPPLY CHAIN RISKS
Recognizing supply-chain risks is next to harsome and tedious tasks. To follow the supply chain you need to monitor multiple resources which is extremely difficult. The steps involved are firstly begin by acknowledging the risks involved, study the entire process. And then Measure what’s more required to bring in more transparency, into the vendor’s security practices. And adding the new processes to new procurements.
These are the trends that need maximum recognition and monitoring before any other trends. Internet usage is increasing day by day with excess resources around the world. Hence monitoring these trends will ensure safe internet to the people.
