Important factors for cyber security readiness
Today’s Digital businesses need multifaceted interactions between people, applications, and data anytime, anywhere; resulting in an increase in the attack surfaces that are hard to protect. To safeguard operations and strengthen the security posture, embedding cybersecurity into an enterprise’s fabric is vital. It calls for protecting data, networks, assets, and everything online from unauthorized access, breach, or hacking.
Security is no longer is limited to just the perimeter or the end point , with employees working remotely security now needs to be managed at various edges whether it is at End Point , Network or for all the cloud applications so strategy may differ for every organisation depending on their environment , however for every organisation data security has to be the key thing to focus on whether on prem or no multi cloud.
Problems faced by the CIOs/CISOs
The arrival of big data platforms and enterprise-wide, cloud-based file sharing services means organisations must review their strategy for data security. They need to protect data from personal information that can identify a customer to sensitive intellectual property or proprietary information. As the cloud environment is more widely adopted, it becomes more of a target for security attacks. Organisations will need to ensure that they have developed security policies and guidelines for both public and private cloud use to mitigate the security risks and to manage the compliance.
With endpoint security breaches so prevalent across the world, many organisations are likely to move away from traditional prevention models and into protection-based security models so there would be a shift of focus from prevention to protection hence more and more organisations are adopting ZTNA as they move on their cloud journey.
To face the challenges
Given the immense opportunity for career growth in the cybersecurity industry today, having the right guidance is a must. The industry faces many challenges from a staffing perspective currently from the skills shortage to employee burnout, this makes the role of a mentor that much more important as others navigate these challenges.
We have of late been hiring fresh talent from good universities and putting them through a program to acquire skills based on their interest and getting them to scale up as a multifaceted resource at the same time ensuring they are learning new age technologies is a must.
In that process we are able to offer our customer the latest technology and are able to keep our customers abreast with the latest, while adopting the technology we do ensure that we bring in our services to ensure smooth transition for our customers.
