The Shifting Landscape of Cybersecurity: Top Considerations for CISOs

As we venture into the second half of 2023, it is crucial for CISOs and security professionals to stay ahead of the curve by understanding the trends that are poised to shape the future of the industry. In this blog, we will explore the key takeaways from the first half of 2023, which highlight the game-changing potential of AI, the influential role of market forces on security and resilience, the prevalence of multiple vendor architecture, the impact of public oversight on private operations, and the convergence of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT).

CNAPP: The Future of Cloud Security

The cloud has arrived. According to data from the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), 89% of organizations now host sensitive data or workloads in the cloud. But increased use doesn’t necessarily mean better protection: 44% of companies feel “moderately” able to protect this data, and 33% say they’re only “slightly” confident in their defense. With cloud networks growing exponentially, businesses need a new way to handle both existent and emerging threats. Cloud-native applications protection platforms (CNAPP) offer an integrated, end-to-end security approach that can help companies better manage current conditions and prepare for future attacks. 

Mitigating Cloud Security’s Greatest Risk: Exposure

Cloud security is complex and distributed. Implementing security controls across on-premise environments traditionally sits with the information security team, but in the cloud, the responsibility could be distributed across developers, DevOps and InfoSec teams. DevOps and developers don’t primarily focus on security, and the impact is often seen as an increase in misconfigurations introducing the risk of breaches.
