Query.AI Releases Six Predictions for Cybersecurity in 2022
Fremont, CA: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world shifted to a more remote work model, leading to an influx of new cybersecurity threats, technologies, and business models. The fact that the technology landscape is constantly changing is not a new revelation, but it has reached new heights in the last year.
Query. AI, the market's only security investigations control plane for modern enterprises, has published the company's six predictions for the cybersecurity industry in the coming year.
"The most obvious factor influencing what we'll see in the world of cybersecurity next year is the COVID-19 pandemic," remarked Andrew Maloney, Query.AI co-founder, and chief operating officer. "Security teams will be forced to bridge all the security gaps introduced by organizations' rush to digitally transform. Aside from this, though, we'll see a major shift in regard to how organizations hire cybersecurity talent, store their data, and construct their security architecture – a trend that I like to call 'The Great Migration' of people, data, and technology. Across the board, we'll see organizations rethink the tools, processes, and strategies they've traditionally used and put a new security plan in place that will help them better defend against today's advanced cybercriminals and build a resiliency strategy customized for the new digital world we live in."
The Query.AI 2022 cybersecurity predictions include:
1. 2022 will be the year of "COVID security cleanup. When COVID-19 forced organizations to transform their business models practically overnight, companies deployed a variety of new technologies in a sprint to sustain operations, often leaving security as an afterthought. This has left CISOs with a big mess to clean up: plugging all the security holes introduced by organizations' rush to digitally transform.
2. XDR will die on the vine as a single provider solution. Despite promises from extended detection and response (XDR) vendors, given today's dispersed data and siloed security tools, no one technology provider can possibly have all the capabilities needed for security analysts to perform investigations efficiently. The only way XDR will work as intended is if XDR vendors decide to partner in areas where they don't have convergence or capabilities.
3."The Great Migration" of people: to overcome the cybersecurity skills gap, organizations will look for talent in more cost-effective locations across the U.S. Organizations are tired of battling the competitive talent pool in traditional tech hotspots, such as Silicon Valley and Austin. This frustration, in combination with the newfound remote workforce, will spawn a talent migration in 2022, where more organizations will build out their teams and close the cybersecurity skills gap by tapping talent in more cost-effective locations across the U.S.
