The Continuous Cyber Treat
With cyber-attacks and AI-Enhanced cyberthreats increasing over the years, especially since 2018, witnessing crimes related to massive data breaches, flaw in microchips, crypto-jacking, and many others, taking precautious steps into handling these horrific incidences is crucial.
The advancement of technology plays a large role in making these attackers smarter day by day. Cybercriminals take advantage of firms who pay less heed to cybersecurity, targeting almost everything from small blogs to online stores to gain access to sensitive information. According to a report by Threat Horizon, organizations will face threats under three key themes: disruption, distortion, and deterioration of the business and/or individual.
Disruption includes over-dependence on fragile connectivity which will increase the risk of premeditated internet outages, compromising the business operations.
Distortion includes the spread of misinformation by bots and automated sources which will compromise the trust in the integrity of information.
Deterioration includes the rapid advances in smart technologies and conflicting demands posed by evolving national security which will negatively impact an enterprise’s ability to control information.
With these threats in mind, stay ahead and prepared by managing cloud vulnerability with high cloud security protection. Organization leverage cloud applications and store sensitive data related to their employees and business operations on the cloud will continue to be one of the biggest cybersecurity challenges faced by many organizations but investing in improving cloud security and keeping up to date decreases, if not eliminates, deep cyber intrusions.
Cybersecurity is prioritized by setting up a specific security strategy to assess and classify the data you handle and the personalized security you need to protect them. Focus on cybersecurity awareness and educate employees on the importance of data protection and security protocols. Invest in cybersecurity tools such as antivirus software, firewalls, and other privacy tools to automatically scan threats. And whatever you do, keep it up. Good Cybersecurity is not a one and done event, it is ongoing, and needs to be to ensure you remain one step ahead of the criminals.
