The COVID-19 crisis has brought to fore the vulnerabilities in traditional information security mechanisms as companies adopt remote working models to ensure business continuity. Ensuring foolproof data privacy requires a robust system that arrests phishing and ransomware attacks before they wreak havoc on enterprise systems and applications. This requires organizations to bring about a paradigm shift in their approach – move from ‘perimeter security’ to ‘borderless security’. As pressure mounts to ensure predictive security alerts using better tools, data visibility and deeper forensic intelligence, chief information security officers (CISOs) must change their outlook to cyber security. Unlike conventional IT security methods, cyberthreat hunting and simulation must be more proactive and iterative when it comes to searching networks and datasets to detect breaches that would otherwise elude existing automated tools. The ability to embrace risk and accelerate adoption of technology to drive growth is a critical success factor.
