Secrutiny’s 2021 Cybersecurity Predictions
15 December 2020
With the new year just around the corner, see what the cybersecurity landscape looks like for businesses in 2021…
Governments Will Make Payments to Cyber Criminals Illegal
The Home Office Will Become Separate From the Home WiFi
Recovery Will Be More High Profile Than Defence
‘Secure the Data’ Will Become More Important Than ’Secure the Environment’
Operational Technology Will Become the Ransom Target
Data Reduction Will Become a Security Driver
Multiple Identity Telemetry Will Be Needed for Authentication
Spending on cyber defence lowers the risk of a breach but investing in recovery means a quicker return to business. Getting the balance right minimises the impact of a cyberattack.
In a major update to the recent FireEye security incident, it has now been revealed that a sophisticated and long-lasting supply chain attack against technology vendor SolarWinds was responsible for the breach.
Cybersecurity firm FireEye has suffered a sophisticated state-sponsored breach resulting in the theft of their “red team” tools. To help affected organisations understand what they should do, this advisory contains several actionable steps our team suggests and further recommendations for security mechanisms to help manage/prevent these attacks.
