Presentation: Cybersecurity Trends You Should Know About

The world of technology is very different today than it was just 5 years ago. From the technologies we use (cloud computing) to the threats we face (Ransomware, BEC) to the way we protect our data (MFA, Zero Trust), the cybersecurity landscape continues to evolve rapidly. It’s highly likely that we’ll look back 5 years from now and talk about how different our technologies and protections are today compared to back then.

In this session, we’ll discuss the continued evolution and trends in cybersecurity we believe are likely to occur in the next few years, including:

  • Cloud Computing Adoption
  • Continued reliance on Vendors (Vendor Management)
  • Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
  • Advanced Cybersecurity Controls (Zero Trust, Behavioral Analytics, Automation, Threat Hunting)
  • Future/Evolving Threats
  • Customer Adoption of Technologies
