In today’s digital age, cyber security has become crucial for big players and small startups alike. Today, the stakes are higher than ever. Gradually but surely, technology has gone well beyond being a supplement to a company’s core operations, and in the assets living on their network are their core operations. Add to this the increasing instances of hacking, mobile usage and internet of things, as well as the growing ecosystem of cybercriminals, and you have a situation that to be tackled comprehensively and consistently.
Cyber security is constantly evolving. Both sides-the attackers and the defenders are in constant innovation.The biggest challenge for cyber security organizations inside companies large and small results from two megatrends.
(1) The massive growth in data from business systems and the security sensors meant to protect those businesses, and
(2) The shortage of skilled cyber security teams to analyze and respond to security incidents affecting this data. For starters, there is malware used by a significant number of all cyber security criminals to obtain their goal. From making you pay a ransom to get your own data back to infiltration of an organization through spear phishing to stealing confidential information-malware does it all. Some malware's sole purpose to lie low and sell access to the highest bidder. Then there are the user based leaks- caused either by disgruntled employees or smart opportunists or even through plain carelessness. All of this can cost you your organizational reputation, financial well-being and competitive advantage.

Developing innovative and futuristic software is but half the story. The other half is: building opacity against intrusion. The challenges are many. First up, there are the requirements of e-commerce. With the internet emerging as the top ranking channel allowing businesses to reach out to customers, 24 x7, the services need to be safe and confidential. Ditto with health care where buying and selling prescription drugs as well medical equipment is booming online. Similarly, IoT-enabled devices exchange data with each other through the internet, helping businesses to operate smoothly. Then there are those multiple SAAS platforms that allow brands to launch and scale an ecommerce business at less cost. The hugely popular aggregator model that collects or aggregates information on goods and services on a single platform has security issues too.
Over time, breaches have progressed from disadvantageous to all-destructive.
"Blended threats," as we refer to them, lead to billions of dollars of damage, even forcing companies to shut shop. Keeping all this in mind, the need to ensure security for an increasingly mobile workforce that works from home on its laptop-outside the company's protective firewalls, is the tricky bit.
Against this backdrop, governments the world over have come up with additional legislation to regulate the technology ecosystem. This legislation spans broad areas like consumer privacy, to specific regulations for industries, such as health care or finance. Because the Internet is easily accessible from many places in the world, it is important to operate in compliance with these regulations. Companies comply with both government legislation and industry regulations tend to outdo their competition. Read Less
