Cybersecurity professionals have to say ahead of current trends in technology in order to remain experts in their field.
The wave of technology innovations being rapidly adopted across businesses has created an unparalleled level of access and connectivity across people, information, systems, and assets worldwide. This has raised the importance of cybersecurity for many reasons. A cyberattack can damage not only your business’ data but also its reputation and profit margin.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has had an incredible impact on cybersecurity professionals and their daily functions. IoT encompasses a domain in which almost anything can be connected and communicate by combining simple data to yield useable intelligence. With this opportunity comes great risk.
Organizations must focus higher attention on monitoring networks and creating alerts for when signs of breach are detected.
As businesses immerse more of their operational activities in the cloud, their employees are still the weakest link in the cybersecurity plan. Leaders in cybersecurity need to develop educational programs to train employees on avoiding a data breach. In a majority of corporate security breaches, hackers have used employees to gain access to protected files through email phishing scams or social engineering. These types of data breaches can be avoided through training programs and employee awareness.
