Cybercriminals have become enough smarter necessitating to incorporate intelligence driven cybersecurity for a swift response to the highly advanced attacks. In recent years, the stakes for protecting an enterprise from cyber threats has become higher with the game-changing innovations in Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning(ML), and Cloud.
However, the change in cybersecurity practices is challenging especially for startups and early-stage ventures. This is due to innovations that have been developed by cyber criminals which have been creating compromise on millions of personal and professional data.
Following are few trends that will influence the landscape of cybersecurity in 2019
Adopting traditional approaches to perform forensic analysis especially on public cloud environment is not adequate. Generally, cloud computing platform involves two or more parties, so there is a need to establish a proper regulatory framework like cloud forensics during the investigation of cybercrimes. Most of the organizations thoroughly showing interest in cloud computing which makes cloud forensics as a significant area to view it.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning have potential to authenticate and respond to the threats. Users can perform log analysis on volumes of data and turns them into actionable insights to enhance an organization's cybersecurity efforts. Even though these two technologies are creating cybersecurity trends, but at the same time they are creating sophisticated threats. Innovations in these technologies made cybercriminals to leverage them by launching sophisticated attacks through AI chatbots and well-organized phishing attacks.
Efficient attack analysis and response through RPA
Usage of Robotic Process Automation especially in cybersecurity will improve threat detection, and response. Most of the organizations have started deploying RPA in cybersecurity to eliminate the risk of human errors which will automatically remediate some of the security issues focussed by humans. The latitudes of automation will also expand in the future where robots and machines will automatically handle the cybersecurity patterns.
