In 2018 there were many computer attacks that resulted in the disclosure of confidential personal data, greatly harming the reputation of many companies. By 2019, companies need to set new budgets for the security issue and need to look at this area as a truly strategic business sector. In this article, we’ll cover the main trends in cybersecurity in 2019!
Data storage and backup
The Cloud assumes itself as one of the great trends for 2019 due to the high levels of security it offers. Using cloud solutions ensures greater mobility and a wider choice of options. However, we cannot make the mistake of thinking that just putting the information in the Cloud so that it stays protected. Because Cloud storage enables company files to be viewed on any mobile device, it is critical to ensure that these devices stay protected. Storing business information in the Cloud is very important to keeping information secure, but it is not enough to guarantee this: it is mandatory to ensure that the devices are all protected. This is also a growing trend due to the fact that it is an increasingly customizable solution to the needs of each company.
This trend should have been in place for a long time, as it is one of the most effective ways of ensuring information at all levels of the company. Hackers are always one step ahead in the area of technology, finding new ways to hack into computer systems. Layer protection is a much more effective way of ensuring that data is secure and consists of a number of practices, such as firewall, antispam, antivirus, and other tools, to block all access from dubious sources.
More personal spam
Geolocalisation services will enable phishers to approach citizens with fraudulent offers designed specifically to appeal to an audience with certain characteristics. “In 2018, combining social postings, emails, and advertising ads was used in the composition of advanced campaigns. Phishers should develop increasingly complex geolocation-driven messages. You have to be very careful with emails in 2019, “warns Villadiego.
Tailored security solutions
The technology market is evolving into a new paradigm of solutions as they solve the specific “pains” of each customer. With companies increasingly demanding information security, IT solution providers are starting to offer more personalized approaches, taking into account the size and complexity of each company’s IT infrastructure. A more personalized approach will allow companies to adopt solutions exclusively tailored to their needs.
Regulation on data protection
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on May 25, 2018, and the new law presents substantial fines for companies that do not comply with the regulation. Companies will be more willing to invest in security solutions because the investment will be necessary so that they do not have to pay high fines. The trend for the next few years is to expand the performance of the new data protection regulations so that there is a growing security of private data.
