Recently, on Wednesday a report said that the increasing convergence of the technological and physical worlds are planning to expand the security challenges globally and the organizations will feel the long-term implications of this new digital ecosystem.
The defense contractor company “Raytheon” looked at all aspects of cyber security and the “2017 Cybersecurity Predictions Report”, which is prepared by cyber security experts from web security firm Force point from both the individual and business behaviors about the impact of larger technology trends on governance and international engagement.
Kris Lamb, Vice President of Force point Threat Protection R&D and Security Labs, said in a statement “The security challenges arising from the rapid integration of the digital and physical worlds in 2017 will be felt globally.” But According to Josh Douglas, Raytheon Foreground Security Chief Strategy Officer, “Organizations think they get inherent security just by migrating to the cloud”.
Douglas also added, “But moving data off-site does not absolve organizations of their responsibility to secure it and best practices still matter. The end result of a rush to cloud computing without these considerations may mean a decreased security posture for many companies in 2017.”
Recently the reports predicted that the rise of voice-activated artificial intelligence (AI) to access web, data and apps will open up data privacy concerns.
Also, a recent report said, “A new corporate-incentivized insider threat may clash with customer data, corporate profit, and other performance goals, forcing businesses to re-evaluate their corporate environments and growth strategies.”
These reports indicate that there will be cybersecurity challenges to expand globally in 2017 with the growth of crime rate and all the 2016 hacks that caused various internet sources a huge loss of not only money but privacy as well.
