“The 'deep fake' can be well countered with the 'deep trust'”
Educating customers & employees
Pandemic has transformed the whole concept of automation, digitalization, and IT security in a very different manner. Gone are the days of virtualization and digitalization of an organization within the boundaries of its physical existence. The same goes true for boardroom to boardroom virtualization and digitalization. The organizational perimeters have expanded to the homes of its employees. Each employee's home has become his or her workplace.
Hence, that each endpoint having different geography was supposed to be strong in terms of security as an endpoint within the organizational boundaries. The immediate role of the organization was to make each individual accessing the servers and databases from 'anywhere' be more cautious and aware about it. IT training had a complete paradigm shift to build a new kind of strong security culture.
Mitigating threat situation
I do not think threats and vulnerabilities have increased or this new situation will open more gates for attacks provided appropriate measures, checks and controls, and real time audits are there as a new layer of security to handle work from home or work from anywhere kind of situation. 'No Trust' is the best way to handle it. Hardware, be it a smartphone or a laptop at home, needs to be scanned thoroughly every time it connects to the business applications.
Deepfakes are the next threat on which cybersecurity has to act on. Rather, it has already started. But in my opinion, besides technology, HR and organization has a highly demanding role in this to build each workforce as a fully trusted warrior of the organization. The 'deep fake' can be well countered with the 'deep trust'. So, basically 'No Trust' and 'Deep Trust' will go hand in hand provided the organizations know what it means.
Safeguarding customers & employees
I think banking is the best example of this. Even before pandemic we all were (and are) doing mobile banking or online banking. For banks, every customer and every transaction is crucial. It is now required for every organization's business applications to be well equipped with stronger security layers (software & hardware) as well as appropriate checks and controls.
