Making a successful business is all about offering valuable products and services, but what do you do when thieves and hackers try to take valuable data and information from within your business software and systems?
Let’s take a quick look at the top cybersecurity trends for 2020.
Automated Security vs. Automated Threats
AI and machine learning are growing more complex every day, but while these updates may help with production and data organization, hackers and thieves are also putting these tools to use to break into systems and outsmart security suites.
Fortunately, security companies are also addressing these issues and are creating AI that can instantly and intelligently counters the threats faced by a business.
Shining a Light on Mobile Devices
Mobile phones have been an integral part of daily life for a decade now and it would be disingenuous to describe it as a “trend”. So it’s no surprise that more companies and employees are utilizing smartphones to get their work done while on the go.
While this does present a chance to increase your productivity, it can also be an unsecured point through which data thieves can enter.
While fingerprints and DNA samples have long been tools for governments and law enforcement, consumer electronics like smartphones and laptops are bringing biometric tools front and center for private security.
Providing an alternative to the often forgotten and easily stolen password, businesses and consumers should be on the lookout for more devices that require a user’s fingerprint or face to access and operate.
A Shortage of Security Staff
Unfortunately, while trends and threats are always emerging across the world in new ways, a qualified workforce for these new technologies is struggling to keep up.
Studies show that as many as ⅔ of global organizations do not have the staff they need to keep their data and systems secure. While this may mean greater demand and pay for cybersecurity experts, it may also lead to the democratization of these programs and the rise of civilian data scientists.
Managing your business’s cybersecurity can be like sailing on a stormy sea; just when you’ve patched one hole in your boat, five more suddenly appear. By having a skilled security provider by your side, giving you valuable solutions for advancing and protecting your business, you can turn that stormy sea into a smooth sailing experience.
