Cybersecurity Trends in 2019

Cybersecurity is a hot topic for organizations across different business industries. Securing networks and protecting data from cyber-threats has become more important than ever with cyber-incidents on the rise. Here are four cybersecurity trends predicted for the new year:

  1. A focus on cloud-based security platforms

It is likely that 2019 will bring an increased focus on cloud-based security as cloud-based security providers continue to gain popularity in the security market. The draw to cloud-based services comes from their scalable and flexible nature, as well as their ability to provide more automation and orchestration. They are built in a way that lets security and IT teams integrate technologies into the platform and turn them on and off without complications.

  1. Intelligence-driven Cyber security

When automated cyber attacks happen quickly, intelligence is the key to meeting them with a quick response. It can also help predict threats before they happen, as well as allow the organization to have cybersecurity that reacts dynamically when faced with a security threat.

  1. Cyberwarfare

Cyber warfare is the use of computer technology to disrupt the activities of a state or organization, especially the deliberate attacking of information systems for strategic or military purposes. There is a prediction for the increase of cyber warfare and data being used to target both companies and individuals in 2019. Laser-guided spear phishing, an email or electronic communications scam targeted towards a specific individual or organization is an example of how cyber warfare will continue to manifest this year.

  1. Security assessments

We will likely see an increase in the number of organizations required to provide some form of security assessment or audit report in 2019, along with an overall will increase in general cybersecurity awareness. Compliance and cybersecurity standards are both growing topics areas across various industries.
