The threat landscape is constantly evolving, and it’s an enterprise’s job and duty to keep up with the changes and do the best it can to protect its data, employees and networks.
According to the recently published report by Georgia Tech Information Security Center on emerging cyber threats, in 2014 organisations can expect to deal with the issue of security vs. usability when it comes to the data they store in the cloud, insecure connected devices, the increasing attacks targeting mobile platforms and users, and the problems regarding the manipulation of information.
The problems with data stored in the cloud are multiple. For one, if the data is stored unencrypted, the organisations rely on the cloud storage firm to provide security – and that’s often not nearly enough. On the other hand, if they do privately encrypt the data, much of the cloud’s utility is nullified.
Also, there is the problem of employees trying to work more efficiently by using – often against official company policy – file sharing and cloud services with questionable security.
