Orchestrating a Global Push Towards Digital Security

Government leaders are being urged to recognize the importance of cybersecurity resilience as a key component of the global economy, particularly as COVID-19 brought to light a series of major IT security vulnerabilities. Enabling a holistic, human-centric, education-first approach with the buy-in of large corporations, MSMEs, academic institutions, and governments must be the cornerstone of any modern and resilient cybersecurity system.

Zero-Trust Architectures: Guaranteeing Efficient Security in the New Reality

Zero-trust security models had been gaining traction even before early 2020. However, the COVID-19 pandemic brought with it sweeping changes to the threat landscape, with organizations transitioning to WFH models and racing to enhance their IT security practices. So, the question now is — are zero-trust architectures still as effective in this new reality?

Cloud Security: The Next and Inevitable Frontier

As COVID-19 continued to spread around the globe, so did the speed of digital transformation. Cloud has become the launchpad for any successful digital transformation journey, with the majority of organizations reporting an increase in cloud investments following the outbreak of the pandemic. CISOs are realizing that their work is never done — from improving network security to enhancing identity and access management practices, IT security professionals are taking on increasingly critical roles as more access and connection points move outside the walls of enterprise IT, furthering their organizations’ threat exposure.

The Evolution of Encryption and Quantum Computing

Every security infrastructure known to man is reliant on encryption to keep data safe. With the giant leaps in computing power, the emergence of quantum simulators, and the eventual migration to quantum computing, encryption infrastructures will cease to exist, becoming vulnerable to undetectable quantum intrusion. What is the impact of quantum computing in light of COVID-19, and how can governments and organizations prepare for this encryption revolution?
