How Will Cybersecurity Transform Enterprises in 2020?

By Enterprise Security Magazine | Thursday, January 02, 2020

While most of the companies spend a lot of energy to protect their business from external threats, security events initiated by the insiders can be very costly. Intruders not only have intimate knowledge of corporate systems and infrastructure, but they also have something far more powerful, authorized privileged access.

FREMONT, CA: As we step into 2020, it's natural to think about what the future will have in store for enterprises. From a cybersecurity prospect, there are a lot of questions about what are the significant technology trends and what are the risks will they pose?

As we begin a new decade, there's no doubt that the intruders and hackers will try to use the most innovative tools against the enterprise's security, but determining where they focus is always a challenge.

From its inception, the security concern around drones was mostly focused on the physical damage nefarious actors, including nation-states, could perform. In 2020, we could start seeing attackers concentrate more on what drones know and how the information can be used for intelligence gathering and corporate espionage.

While the drones have the potential to do physical damage, the longer-term opportunity for attackers is to use the drones as another pathway to steal and manipulate the sensitive information.

Organizations need to consider who can control the drone's activities, what data the drone is storing, how access to that data is being managed and monitored and, eventually, who owns the responsibility for securing it. The work of a security framework that decreases emerging security risks and potential regulatory and compliance challenges can help address these questions.

With biometric authentication becoming more popular, this year will begin to see a level of unsupported complacency when it comes to security. While it's true that the biometric authentication is more secure than traditional, key-based authentication methods, hackers and intruders typically aren't only after the fingerprints, facial data or retinal scans. Today, they want to access what lies behind the secured authentication methods.

So, while biometric authentication is a very good way to authenticate a user to a device, companies must be aware of that each time it happens, that biometric information must be encrypted, and the assets behind the authentication are kept safe.
