Transforming security for the perma-crisis age 

Cybersecurity tops public and private sector agendas. But concrete progress will take more than words.

After another year of escalating attacks, huge data breaches and nation state involvement, cybersecurity is without question at the top of agendas across governments and private sector Boards. According to one recent survey, in critical sectors such as financial services, cybersecurity is on Board agendas at least quarterly and often even more frequently.

But talk to CISOs, and they will come back to the same old problems: foundational cyber hygiene; third-party risk; ransonmware; phishing and social media scams; the talent shortage and the problem of human error – the inability of employees to follow common-sense risk management protocols.

They still complain about a culture of short-term fixes and unrealistic expectations; a lack of true business buy-in; struggles with legacy systems, and the complexity and expense of the security vendor ecosystem.

Something has to give. The scale of the threat to our increasingly digital world is such that the old excuses no longer wash. And some organisations are finally biting the bullet and adopting solutions which have been long known but deemed too hard to adopt.

For example, zero trust is increasingly seen as an essential practice for enforcing leastprivileged access to everything from networks and applications to users, devices, and workloads. Best practice cybersecurity teams are prioritizing the adoption of zero trust frameworks, along with automation and security orchestration.

The UK’s NCSC is emphasizing data-driven cyber (DDC). As they define it, “DDC is the use of data and scientific methods to make more evidence-based decisions about cyber security. It seeks to transform data into empirical evidence to move cyber security decision-making beyond anecdotes and intuition (which are prone to bias).”

And of course, AI is already beginning to disrupt and transform the cybersecurity landscape for both attackers and defenders.
