Evolving Cybersecurity in the Current Security Landscape

Companies looking to preserve sensitive data may be using some of the most standard security practices, and while these methods are necessary for a complete cybersecurity strategy, more is needed. While once these toolkits may have succeeded in stopping cyber-attacks, today, it just isn’t the case. Cyber-criminals have updated their infiltration methods to steal and extort data, but our security toolkits have stayed the same. Not only is this detrimental to a company’s reputation, should they have data exfiltrated, but it’s directly harmful to those whose data is stolen. Today, cyber-criminals are seeking to exfiltrate and extort Personally Identifiable Information (PII) through sophisticated techniques meant to subvert traditional security practices. Current data security platforms and solution sets are falling behind and failing those who have entrusted their data to companies who promised to keep it safe. It is time to look toward the future of cybersecurity and evolve our solution sets.
