3 Primary Advancements Empowering Cybersecurity Capabilities
Cybersecurity teams are moving towards the latest technological advancements to prepare against impending cyber attacks.
FREMONT, CA: With fraudulent activities on the rise, cybersecurity teams are striving to develop innovative strategies and solutions to counter the issue. The existing cybersecurity efforts have been unable to stop hackers from raising attacks and in some cases, causing irreparable damage. As data security gains importance, safeguarding firms against data losses and theft will become a priority. The cybersecurity teams need to develop solutions that can address the attacks on data, especially when the data is spread across multiple channels such as mobile devices and cloud.
Cybersecurity space is delving into the latest technological advancements to counter the aforementioned challenges. The following are the latest trends and developments in this context.
Advanced Behavior Analytics
Detecting the sign of nefarious activities has always been a challenge for organizations. Further, the cybersecurity software often points to harmless security alerts, thereby making the security professionals even more relaxed. However, the development in advanced behavior analytics will allow the firms to detect impending signs of fraudulent behaviors with higher precision. Highly advanced analytics solutions leverage bioprinting to measure various employee aspects, such as the typing speed of an employee. Such statistics can be used to identify potential attacks.
Machine Learning-Based Solutions
ML has massive potential when it comes to detecting an impending cyber attack. ML algorithms analyze attack patterns with the help of insights gained from past data. ML also enables the existing algorithms to analyze the existing security loopholes. Based on the feedbacks, systems can be updated to improve security preparedness in case of an attack.
Blockchain Technology is an inherently secure technology, and its application can offer obvious security benefits to cybersecurity capabilities. The complex structure of the blockchain makes it a robust security solution. Blockchain’s ledger system enables identity authentication and a secure sharing of information. Several healthcare organizations are already trying to incorporate blockchain technology to safeguard the patient’s data in case of a cyber attack.
Organizations have realized the potential effects of a cyber threat and are increasingly moving towards improved security solutions. In this aspect, the technological innovations will certainly guide the firms to develop a robust security solution.
