2021 Security Considerations You Should Look Out For

Leveraging cybersecurity techniques while improving the customer experience so that you can remain competitive is a delicate balancing act for organizations today. Rapid shifts in technology, new and increasingly sophisticated threats, and ongoing migration to cloud-based platforms demand companies remain vigilant to safeguard customer data.

Many people still have no idea about the importance of information security for companies. Many managers have the misconception that their information is completely secure and free from any threats. That is a big mistake!

As much as a company takes steps to protect its intellectual property, it is important to set aside the belief that it is impossible for someone to break into your data. With the advancement of technologies, cyber-attacks are renewing rapidly, and even before you know it, your organization may already be at risk again.

“2021 will face the rise of Intelligent Threats and Actors,” said Imran Chaudhrey, the Country Manager at Fortinet. He was speaking at the virtual CIO Year Ahead Forum. He went on to explain just how connected the user of today is, with that in mind, the connection can also lead to a variety of data breaches if security considerations are ignored.

“Here’s what CISOs should be preparing for in 2021: Secure edge environments, combine AI with playbooks to anticipate threats, consider emerging cybersecurity trends, It’s a matter of time before everyone becomes a target,” said Chaudhrey.

information security awareness is a very important practice for all medium and large companies. It will protect company data by preventing threats and vulnerabilities. One of the most important mottos of science fiction says “the future is now,” but this is a future that everyone has a responsibility to build.
