Your Challenge

  • The security landscape is rapidly evolving with new technology trends, security threats, and market tactics emerging every day.
  • IT and security professionals are expected to be aware of these new trends and be prepared for them – whether it is securing a new technology or having security controls in place for the latest attack type.
  • With so many different news sources and feeds for security, it can be challenging to understand which trends are relevant and which are currently just fluff.

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • It can be difficult to find the time to research and evaluate different security trends to determine which are relevant and applicable to your organization.
  • The lack of security professionals today is driving many of the security trends, as more automation and management tools exist to ease the workload of current staff.
  • Security solution tactics are becoming more proactive and deceptive. It is now about staying one step ahead of an attacker, instead of being behind.
