As we kick off 2023, we’ve looked at some of the predictions made for how cyber security and its threats will look for this year in an article by Forbes.
Some of the trends mentioned were a big push for SASE (Secure Access Service Edge), a Zero Trust adoption, a rise in targeted ransomware, new cyber regulations with cyber insurance, and many more! Now let’s talk about what some of this even means!
SASE or Secure Access Service Edge
For those that aren’t familiar with SASE, it’s a combination of VPN and SD-WAN with cloud-native security functions like web gateways, Cloud access security brokers, firewalls, and zero-trust network access! This next step in simplified solutions is thought to be on the verge of a massive push by Forbes and you may be learning even more about it in the coming months.
Zero Trust Adoption
This is a scary name that just means constantly verifying your accounts. This is an easy practice to implement as it means you must remove “remember me” or saved passwords from your browser or computer and go through the entire log-in process every time you log in. While this is an effective and easy strategy, it is underutilized because of the extra time and effort it costs to implement it.
If you follow us on social media, then you may already be well-informed on what ransomware is, but in case you don’t know, it is a type of malware that holds some of your valuable information hostage and requests that you pay a certain amount of money, or it will be deleted or even leaked. It is important to remember that you should never pay any cyber threats as it will then give them access to your financials.
