In 2019, as the volume of cyber attacks continued to spike, cybercriminals were increasingly successful in infiltrating corporations’ sensitive data and information. A lot of these attacks, however, were the result of outdated cybersecurity systems and ineffective handling and encryption of sensitive data. As a result, companies around the world lost millions of dollars and spent countless hours working to clean-up the aftermath of costly data-breaches and malware attacks. As the cybersecurity landscape continues to advance in 2020, companies must have a comprehensive security suite that includes breach detection, EDR, email security and privileged access management software.
Every year, as the cybersecurity requirements of businesses become more complex, technology continues to evolve to meet them. Although new Internet of Things (IoT) devices and cloud-based systems are helping companies run more efficiently, they can also pose significant cybersecurity risks. Cyber risks will continue to grow throughout the next year and enterprises need to ensure that they have a comprehensive suite of products to protect all of their devices and systems from the newest threats.
Every year, the cyber attack vector continues to grow, bringing about new threats and concerns. The ever-evolving cybercrime landscape means security systems, technologies and processes require continuous modernization to keep up. Fortunately, cybersecurity companies are updating their technologies to help match the threat landscape, and 2019 was one of the best years on record for cybersecurity innovation. Here are some of 2019’s best cyber advances that will help companies implement stronger malware detection, endpoint security and other types of threat protection.
When it comes to cybersecurity, different tactics emerge on a daily basis, which can make it difficult to keep up with current trends. Sandboxing and honeypot security are two cybersecurity tactics that are constantly evolving but can be confused. These two technologies are quite different and both offer valuable solutions to various cybersecurity issues. By understanding the differences in these two technologies, businesses can be sure they have the right solution for their cybersecurity needs.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and traditional, passive defenses are no longer enough to protect businesses and enterprises. Many companies are pairing defensive and offensive cybersecurity approaches and are implementing measures like honeypots and deception technologies to protect against future attacks.
Cyber attacks have been on the rise for the past five years and are projected to occur every 11 seconds by 2021. The frequency and sophistication of new-age cyber attacks means cybersecurity efforts need to extend beyond traditional defense methods. As more entities implement offensive cybersecurity, global spending on cybersecurity is expected to reach $133.7 billion in 2022. As a part of these offensive cybersecurity efforts, many companies are implementing proactive measures such as honeypots and deception technology to protect from attack.
Since its inception in 1967, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has become the premier global technology showcase. Each year, CES seems to outdo the previous year’s show with newly presented technologies. Along with technology advances, 2020 was also an incredibly transformative year in cybersecurity. Although cybersecurity is normally a small part of the showcasing at CES, this year, companies discussed the importance of malware prevention, EDR and everything in between. Learn more about the cybersecurity takeaways from CES 2020 below.
Have you ever received an email that looks totally legitimate, links to a website that looks real, and asks for personal information? It is becoming harder and harder to know who and what can be trusted. Phishing is the practice of trying to get an unsuspecting email user to engage with an email in some way (opening, clicking, downloading an attachment, sending money, etc.).
