Cyber-security trends

Strategies for defeating cyber-risk

  • Recent trends in IT security are seeing both businesses and cyber-criminals becoming more advanced.
  • One major internal threat is when organisations have a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy that allows their employees to use their own devices at work.
  • In response, businesses must design data security strategies which consider the probability of future threats, instead of focusing on current operations.
  • Because cybercrime trends are often similar across the same industry, sharing information can allow a more effective response.

Key elements of an effective IT security program checklist

  • Ensure effective governance is in place, which is aligned with the entire organisation and is reviewed and updated for best practices.
  • Take a risk-based approach to cover the enterprise’s operations and supply chain security, rather than simply relying on the vendor’s word.
  • Endorse the support of senior management to ensure the company’s security best practices are followed consistently.
  • Create employee awareness of potential security threats through regular training.
