2020 and Beyond: Cyber Trends and how to address them

Not so long ago, the notion of perimeter made sense and was easier to protect. Recently new edges have emerged expanding significantly the attack surface and providing more opportunities for hackers to access this new gold called data. As a result, the threat has been growing in volume and sophistication, by three orders of magnitude. In such context what are the key notions that security professionals need to keep in mind to protect our precious virtual assets and make our hyper connected world a safer place?

Supply and Demand: Closing the Growing Gap in Cybersecurity Skills

At a time when the threat landscape ever expanding, two out of three organizations worldwide claim to have a lack of the IT security staff needed. The need for cybersecurity professionals is at an all-time high. The deficit of qualified individuals has made the need for automated security tools more of a requirement than a desire in order to maintain a strong security foundation. Today's products and technologies can enable even small teams to appropriately secure multiple websites and applications, offering potential answers to the pressing recruitment issues.

Takeaways:

  • There is a critical lack of qualified IT specialists
  • Staffing deficits increase the need for automated tools
  • New products can assist small teams facing big security challenges

Who Accessed Your Data in the Cloud? Your Bosses and Auditors Want to Know.

Your business is moving data to the cloud without all the security controls mandated for on-prem. After all, the promised economics and business agility are far too attractive for business leaders to ignore. But, attackers are after data, auditors demand evidence, and Security is still responsible for protecting data. You need to catch up with that data before attackers and auditors find it, and you need to catch up right now.

Join Imperva to learn how to reconcile Security's need for visibility with the business's need for speed and agility - in minutes.

This session will include:

  • Learn the fast path to getting control of your data already in the cloud
  • What capabilities you will have to bring to make cloud DBaaS secure and audit-ready
  • How  cloud-native data security can be  frictionless to the business's need for speed

Emerging Tech Offering Changes to the Workforce Landscape

Emerging Tech Offering Changes to the Workforce Landscape The barriers are falling. Thanks to AI and AR, it's projected that we will see a dramatic rise in the hiring of people with disabilities. As of right now, roughly 30% of the American workforce is represented by individuals with disabilities. A large amount of the talent pool that has been unexplored at a time when there is a scarcity in available talent. These opportunities will bring about necessary changes in the organization ranging from the culture to the technical aspects. Food for thought: companies that employ disabled individuals hold an 89% higher retention rate, 72% rise in production and a 29% increase in profitability.

Takeaways:

  • AR and AI will open the door for more employment opportunities for disabled people New positions and technologies will alter organizational structure
  • AI and AR will effect hiring standards in the future

Active Defense for the Enterprise of Things

The world is changing... and so is the enterprise. Your organization became a veritable Enterprise of Things (EoT). Traditional PCs, mobile devices, cloud workloads as well as agentless IoT and OT devices. The benefits of this new world are huge. Organizations have flocked to connected devices because of the increased capabilities to support the monitoring and automation of their primary business processes. Add to that the cloud and a rush to a remote workforce, and there's no doubt we're in a new era of device connectivity.

Here's the thing: Everything that touches your enterprise exposes a potential risk. You must see it and secure it. Many of these devices have not been designed with security in mind, and each presents a new door for an attacker to enter and compromise an environment. This is one of the biggest security threats of our time. And yesterday's security strategies and technologies won't solve for this modern threat

Companies want to be custodians of this vast network of devices, not victims of it. This requires an active defense at scale and in real-time. In practice, that means being able to have continuously adaptive protection from threats through up-to-date, cloud-scale risk analysis all informed by the network data from thousands of other customers with millions of devices. That knowledge can then be used to identify, segment and enforce compliance of EVERY connected thing.

Takeaways:

  • Secure every device on your network through Active Defense for the Enterprise of Things.
  • Use of Segmentation to apply Zero Trust across your Enterprise.
  • Reduce risk by simplifying IT and OT/ICS security, compliance and risk management.
