The Key Cyber Security Challenges

There have been a number of predictions recently that the largest cyber-attack in history is destined to happen soon and the underlying concern is the massive increase of the enterprise attack surface and large number of hacks that have happened during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

As lockdown eases, many businesses are preparing for employees to return to work. But  do they have adequate security measures in place? To make their systems are protected from the increased risk of a cyber attack organisations must make sure  that  their people have the opportunity to get cyber security training.

Cyber criminals are well aware of employee environments and will target cyber-attacks in areas that have become vulnerable. We saw this with the spike of phishing attacks themed around working from home and it will continue to evolve as workforces change their work practice once again.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be the biggest security problem to solve and the biggest answer to the privacy problem according to the Institute for Security and Open Methodologies (ISECOM).

AI tends to scare people off due to overuse and under-delivery, but by finding and using valuable and effective Artificial Intelligence based cyber security solutions that don’t add to the workload of your already overworked SOC team, but instead automate and increase efficiency, enterprises can solve this problem.AI is the only viable solution to the potential “D-Day” style attack we’re facing in the near future.

AI and ML, Machine Learning, is like a naive child that trusts what you tell it, and is therefore susceptible to fraud, abuse, and tricks, he says. However, it is also like that stubborn, no-bullshit friend who is always going to tell it to you straight.

ISECOM

ISECOM is a non-profit, open source research organisation that maintains the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM), Hacker High School (a cyber security curriculum for teens in high school) and a security certification authority, all the while operating as a specialty security boutique for securing iconic places that can’t be secured with traditional security products.

ISECOM say that the cyber security industry has room for more innovation, but that the real problem is not a general lack of it, but the fact that attackers have at their disposal such a huge number of attack combinations that a product-based defense today is not enough.

Cyber hygiene can only can somewhat reduce the number of available attack types but not enough to help the overburdened security staff secure everything.

A team of cyber security professionals who endure searching through thousands of false positive alerts might spend hours or even days trying to find a breach when alerted, and every second that passes means the network becomes more and more infected, whereas an advanced AI system can monitor the network, sift through alerts, and surface a potentially deadly attack in seconds.

While we can’t always predict what new cyber threats may lie in the future, it should be the goal of every organisation to keep the data of its users and customers secure and private, more so in these challenging times. To prevent the next big cyber attack doing catastrophic damage, organisations need need to be armed with the most intelligent and advanced tools possible and to be engaging their people with rigorous cyber security training.
