In our digitally connected world, it’s simply not enough for cybersecurity professionals to depend on technical knowledge of cyberthreats alone. You also need to understand how cybersecurity can operate as a collective of resources — both human and technical — within the larger context of your organization.
Secureworks recently asked top industry experts for predictions into what cybersecurity may look like in 2022 — and what their projections mean for protecting your business.
These expert insights include:
As the takeaways above show, a conceptual shift from cybersecurity to cyber resilience is necessary to keep up with a changing landscape, and today’s most dangerous cyberthreats need robust security solutions.
That’s why Extended Detection and Response (XDR) is taking center stage as a new horizon in protection. According to Forrester Research, XDR unifies security-relevant endpoint detections with telemetry from security and business tools such as network analysis and visibility (NAV), email security, identity and access management, cloud security, and more. It is a cloud-native platform built on big data infrastructure to provide security teams with flexibility, scalability, and opportunities for automation.
Essential XDR benefits include:
Secureworks experts predicts that in in 2022, XDR software sales will increase, taking security budget from SIEM, endpoint and SOAR budgets.
Built by security experts, for security experts, Secureworks provides complete cybersecurity solutions featuring the Taegis cloud-native security operations and analytics platform, plus derivative SaaS XDR, ManagedXDR and VDR offerings, supported by Secureworks professional services.
There’s a wide gulf between acknowledging the possibility of a cyberattack and being fully prepared to handle one. As you plan for the future, business stakeholders need to consider why cybersecurity ultimately begins in the c-suite. Executive support for a security team's strategic approach and actions can mean the difference between a costly cyberattack and a non-event.
Members of the c-suite can impact the threat horizon through their support for an innovative security strategy and the organization-wide changes it requires. As such, executives should be aware of their company’s risk profile and security strategy, and need to understand the influence they can wield over their organization’s cybersecurity posture.
When it comes to cybersecurity visibility, seeing is protecting. Moving forward, cybersecurity will become a regular topic across the c-suite, including during discussions about business operations and customer engagement.
