As we enter the new decade, we have the opportunity to set new business goals. Now is the time to look at how your security company can thrive not only over the next 6 months to one year but also over the next 5-10 years. In the future, security companies will need to look beyond their micro-environment and take into account the macroeconomic developments that drive the growth of the industry as a whole, to develop its activities in light of its strong momentum and increasing competition. From smarter images to virtual security and from cloud technology to machine exploration – the number of security and technology trends shaping the future of the industry.
2020 Security Trends
Below-mentioned is some of the core security trends in 2020 along with the tips to follow them:
No Wonder: The Number of Cases Is Increasing
Surprising data breaches are becoming more common as cybercrime has become a big deal. A recent survey of numerous companies found that 70.5% experienced at least one data breach at one time and 45.6% reported breaches last year (compared to 25.6% a year earlier). Many of these attacks exploit employees’ unfamiliarity with phishing and other social technology methods designed to steal company data and provide cybercriminals with open access to networks. Therefore, it is believed that IT training for employees is an essential part to deal with it.
AI And Machine Learning Are Driving Most of the Security Efforts
Artificial Intelligence and Machine-Learning make life easier for online professionals who want to increase data protection. According to a Cisco report, about 85.7% of US network security experts use AI, and 35.4% of security experts rely on machine learning alone. Engine algorithms can be used to accelerate incident detection and response, to identify and disseminate business risks (such as software vulnerabilities and setup errors), and to provide local awareness to management to get an overview of your security status.
They both are fundamentally changing the way businesses operate today – in the security and other industries. AI-based technologies have a variety of applications, including proactive monitoring, video analysis, false alarm filtering, better operator performance, inconsistency detection, and more.
The introduction of 5G networks will significantly affect the rapid functioning of the security industry. The goal of 5G is to speed data communication up to three times over 4G. Delay 5G is extremely fast, so 4G is off and 5G is growing, not only do security companies benefit from faster data transfers, but they also operate at external speeds. As a result, security risks can be absorbed and responded to even faster, especially in remote areas such as construction sites.
Cloud Technology Solutions
The transition from local storage to cloud technology is accelerating. Of those who have already moved in, 85.7% said that businesses are experiencing business acceleration using cloud services. Moving to the cloud enables security companies to make their business much more efficient and profitable. It will also allow the security industry to use more technology, such as machine learning, but will provide better connectivity with other business areas. For those concerned about the security and confidentiality of the cloud, it is encouraging to hear that the most trusted cloud companies have all made major investments in the security they provide.
Manned To Virtual Security
By combining new technologies with traditional security technologies, security companies can explore the world of virtual security and its benefits. Remote protection combines elements such as mobile alarms with random checks to ensure a high level of security. Using technologies like video detection software to detect real-life interference, anti-spyware and mobile monitoring are all ways to provide your security staff with additional tools to help them reach more make decisions and take action.
Cybercriminals Will Develop Attack-Vectors
One of the major factors driving the rise in cyber-attacks is the widespread use of the Internet of Things (I-o-T) devices. Study shows that the number of cyber-attacks has increased by 100% last year, forcing companies to better discover their Internet systems and find ways to improve the visibility of large networks and devices. Ransomware is also on the rise, with the number of ransomware attacks increased by 30% last year. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that by 2021, damage to ransomware programs will reach more than 10.5 billion dollars, but attacks will occur every 14 seconds. However, while the number of ransomware options increased by 45.6% last year, addressing average demand increased from a maximum of 1,055 dollars in 2017 to 555 dollars in 2018, indicating that criminal organizations can focus on higher-value targets. Malicious malware also continues to grow, with 55.4% of new versions showing the popularity of mobile phones as computer attacks.
And The Companies Are Still Not Ready
In a survey of 2,550 IT security employees, 75.7% said their organizations did not have an official network response plan, and only one in four had one informal or specific procedure. This is a big concern because of the increased number and severity of cyber-attacks and data breaches. And worse, nearly half of security professionals make significant changes to their security policies, even after being victimized by an internet attack. Even the most experienced information security professionals need to follow the process of learning network security and keep their skills as sharp as possible. On the plus side, 85.6% of US organizations plan to increase spending on network security next year, compared with 75.6% last year.
Security Experts Need To Think Like a Hacker
The only way to defeat hackers and cybercriminals is to understand how their programs work from the inside out. This has been trained by Certified-Ethical-Hackers (C-E-H) and will be an invaluable tool in the fight against cybercrime. Also, CISA certification provides the necessary capabilities for all IT departments that take data and network security seriously.
Increased Need for Security
Organizations are beginning to realize that most crimes today start from the last point and allow criminals to sneak into the corporate network. The number of endpoints (including mobile phones) continues to grow, while threats such as mobile malware appear to have a little direct impact on businesses, we are seeing an increase in data breaches related to the use and misuse of mobile phones. Each device used to access a company’s systems is another performance indicator that an organization must ensure. Organizations must be cautious and avoid using tools or solutions to solve immediate problems or problems. Instead, they should choose solutions that can keep pace and evolve with threats.
Security in 2020: Wider, Deeper Threats – But Don’t Forget the Basics
A steady dose of breach and privacy shows that security works for many organizations at their best. And security is still a small thing for many business leaders. Maybe it’s because there have been so many leaks that they think the risk to their reputation is low. It’s a dangerous precondition. Multiple applications and other devices mean that the security forces are already too dispersed. Add new risks, such as internet projects, 5G devices, and in-depth research, and add challenges when companies do not have a comprehensive security overview. Organized crime and its offenders remain a threat to most businesses; State and spy attacks remain a distant but potentially very visible threat to the minority. Because of all this, the biggest risk is; employees fall for malicious emails or use their pet’s names as passwords and the wrong cloud applications. There are always new dangers, so be prepared for something out of the ordinary without forgetting the basics.
