Implementing Basic IT Hygiene

At a time when the threat landscape ever expanding, two out of three organizations worldwide claim to have a lack of the IT security staff needed. The need for cybersecurity professionals is at an all-time high. The deficit of qualified individuals has made the need for automated security tools more of a requirement than a desire in order to maintain a strong security foundation. Today's products and technologies can enable even small teams to appropriately secure multiple websites and applications, offering potential answers to the pressing recruitment issues.

Takeaways;

  • There is a critical lack of qualified IT specialists
  • Staffing deficits increase the need for automated tools
  • New products can assist small teams facing big security challenges

Emerging Tech Offering Changes to the Workforce Landscape

The barriers are falling. Thanks to AI and AR, it's projected that we will see a dramatic rise in the hiring of people with disabilities. As of right now, roughly 30% of the American workforce is represented by individuals with disabilities. A large amount of the talent pool that has been unexplored at a time when there is a scarcity in available talent. These opportunities will bring about necessary changes in the organization ranging from the culture to the technical aspects. Food for thought: companies that employ disabled individuals hold an 89% higher retention rate, 72% rise in production and a 29% increase in profitability.  

Takeaways; 

  • AR and AI will open the door for more employment opportunities for disabled people 
  • New positions and technologies will alter organizational structure 
  • AI and AR will effect hiring standards in the future

Thought Leadership

Led by eSentire

IT security professionals all face one major issue: being asked to do more, with less resources. Automation and integration are a necessity in order to meet the demands of an organization's security needs. Managing risk without diminishing the speed and quality of development is achievable by integrating security into agile processes, like DevOps or CI/CD. Since most security teams are understaffed, automated solutions are becoming a requirement, rather than an option to properly manage the ever-increasing workload. 

Takeaways;

  • Automation is required to meet today's security demand 
  • DevOps can operate more efficiently with CI/CD 
  • IT security staff are responsible for more than ever

The Elephant in the Room, Data Breaches

Data breaches remain one of the largest security threats noted by organizations and IT security professionals alike. If data remains as a high valued commodity, ensuring data privacy and securing personal data will continue to be at the top of the list of an organization's concerns. The increases in privacy legislation, such as GDPR and CCPA, and the understanding of the ramifications stemming from a breach have allowed these concerns to remain heavily in the spotlight. Web application flaws have been identified as the top cause of data breaches. As such, establishing and maintaining web application security has developed into a high priority for all organizations.

Takeaways;

  • Data breaches are the biggest security concern
  • Data continues to be a high value asset but the need to protect it is even higher
  • New laws like GDPR and CCPA enforce consequences for failing to secure data

Executive Boardroom

Keeping Pace with Innovation, Chronologically and Economically

Today's digital evolution will take major enterprises twice as long and cost twice as much as initially anticipated. They will likely struggle with digital innovation as they realize the associated challenges and costs within modernization. As such, smaller and more agile organizations have a great opportunity to be first to market, while larger organizations suffer through uninspiring immediate benefits.

Takeaways;

  • Digital innovation is not cheap or quick
  • How can your organization best plan for implementation?
  • Smaller organizations tend to have an easier time testing out new technology 

Executive Boardroom

Going Mobile, Securely

The average employee uses at least 3 different mobile devices to access business data. This number has risen and so has the amount of company data that is being stored on each device. Each device represents another endpoint that needs to be secured. While mobile malware threats are low, it's expected that there will be a rise in data breaches directly related to mobile devices. Providing access to company data via a secure web application infrastructure with real-time vulnerability management is one way of reducing risk with mobile devices.

Takeaways;

  • Mobile devices are generally considered safe means to access business data
  • Employees use an average of three mobile devices, each is its own security challenge
  • Data breaches through mobile devices are expected to increase

Artificial Intelligence: What It Means For The IT Department?

This year will offer a wake-up call for many, as the overall cost of getting data wrong will be realized. Chief Data and Analytics Officers (CDAOs) and CIOs focusing on AI will rest assured knowing their teams have what they need when it comes to data. One of the major obstacles is sourcing data from a complex portfolio of applications and convincing gatekeepers to say yes. Effectively using intelligent automation will require compelling efforts in data cleansing, integration, and management that IT will need to support. Correcting previous data issues in legacy systems can be a considerable hurdle to leap, especially for larger enterprises. Top organizations will increase, and possibly double, their data strategy budget. 

Takeaways

  • Mishandling data comes at a huge financial cost 
  • AI offers more predictable means of safeguarding data 
  • IT teams will need to be effective at cleaning and organizing data
