A perfect cybersecurity storm is brewing


A storm is brewing in cybersecurity that could reshape the priorities of the entire industry over the next couple of years. Four macro-trends are coming together at the same time:

1) The use of ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด now represents in the most commonly used attacks.

2) ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป is looming if not already upon us. Employees who are terminated or who believe they are at risk may be more susceptible to threat actors attempting to exploit access.

3) ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—š๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป. People quit and go to companies with a better work-life balance or a more flexible working policy. Increased employee attrition requires careful security management to prevent exposure.

4) ๐—œ๐—ป๐—ณ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป โ€“ the cost of living is skyrocketing. If offered enough money to keep the heating running through the winter, in exchange for sharing credentials, how many employees would accept?

What connects all of this is ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ณ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฟ.

Cyber โ€‹โ€‹hasnโ€™t really been an โ€œITโ€ problem for a long time, but to succeed in cybersecurity in 2022, we increasingly need a holistic view, which includes the business and the people who serve it. compose.
