In this digital era, businesses have incurred huge losses due to the sophistication of cyber-attacks and a growing number of security breaches. Maintaining pace with the threat landscape is a common pain point the cyber experts are facing. According to a survey, Data breaches exposed 4.1 billion records in the last six months. Website security continues to be a major concern with the rapid growth of businesses relying on IT infrastructure.
Let’s have a look at the security trends ready to disrupt your online presence:
- The Rising Threat of Data Breach
Since the business data has enormous value in the black market, it remains the prime target of hackers. The increasing graph of data breaches has shaken the business world with website security turning out to be a major concern for businesses. A data breach in your organization will incur a huge loss to your business with the loss of customer loyalty, revenue downfall, and negative brand reputation.
Regular security audits secure your online presence from a data breach. Vulnerability and compliance management will continuously monitor your IT assets to identify gaps and security misconfiguration in your physical and virtual environments. Allowing your security team to understand the security risks of the working environment will help you to proactively mitigate the data breach.
- IoT Vulnerability
Over the years, we have seen mobiles being vulnerable to attacks. In the present scenario, with the increasing proliferation of the Internet of Things, organizations relying on IoT devices are even more at risk. They offer a plethora of potential vulnerabilities like insecure Wi-Fi networks, hard-coded credentials, and unencrypted data. A compromised router serves a platform to launch a massive number of attacks through IoT devices. The organizations automating their processes with the Internet of Things need to secure their web assets.
Encrypting the communication between the IoT devices will help you fight the vulnerabilities. To secure the web assets either block the incoming traffic to the IoT devices or make sure there are no open software ports that can be controlled by a hacker. A separate network connection and constant monitoring of IoT devices will reduce the risk of IoT vulnerabilities.
- Intelligent Malware
With the technologies, cyber threats are no more carried out by human brains. Cybercriminals are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to sneak into your confidential information. It is the reality of today that cybercriminals can create sophisticated malware with the help of AI.
Cybersecurity experts are finding it a bit challenging to deal with intelligent AI malware. According to a survey, 69% of experts believe AI is important to counter sophisticated cyber-attacks. Incorporating an AI-based security system will assist the experts in Cybersecurity by delivering analytical information generating alerts for a security lapse.
- Leaky Clouds
The digital transformation has led to the rapid acceptance of cloud technology across the business world. The majority of the enterprises are leveraging cloud technology at least as a part of their IT solution to enhance business growth. However, the growing popularity of cloud technology is not hidden from cyber-criminals and the cloud-based threats are evolving day by day.
To deal with cloud-based threats, organizations should have real-time threat intelligence in place minimizing the attacks. Also, the encryption is the best method to prevent the intruder from spying on your confidential information. Website monitoring tools with the help of cutting-edge technologies assist cyber experts in the Cybersecurity war.
