How to Provide Your Clients Cyber Security for the Evolving Business Landscape

As businesses prepare to step forward into the new year, rest assured cyber criminals will be walking along in stride. There are several reasons why cyber security continues to weigh heavily on executives – the shortage of technical security experts, migration to cloud computing, compliance regulations, and evolution of threats1 – to name a few. And here are a few pre-pandemic statistics2 to highlight how much of a problem business security continues to be:

  • 62% of businesses experienced phishing and social engineering attacks in 2018.
  • Security breaches have risen 11% since 2018 and 67% since 2014.
  • Hackers attack every 39 seconds, averaging 2,244 times per day.

Cyber crime increased by 63% since the COVID-19 shutdown started3. Additionally, human error has been the biggest challenge during this timeframe, according to CISOs; so organizations must continue to stay vigilant in the new year.

Understand How Cloud Security Plays Into Cyber Security

Enterprise spending on cloud security solutions is predicted to increase from $636 million in 2020 to $1.63 billion in 20234, and the pandemic is the biggest reason for this projected increase.

The COVID-19 crisis forced security teams to refocus on the value of cloud-delivered security and tools that don’t require a LAN connection. Additionally, remote network access, migration to cloud data centers, SaaS applications, and new digitization efforts became necessary to minimize person-to-person interaction during the pandemic.

Because of these pandemic-related shifts, security for cloud-native applications has also become essential5. Many organizations are still using the same security products for networks and devices as they did for server workloads – a technique that continues during “lift and shift” cloud migrations.

Cloud-native applications require a different level of security. As the applications grow increasingly dynamic, the security options need to escalate as well.
