Recent Trends in Information Security

Understanding the potential effects of recent data security trends on your business can help you stay at the forefront of cyber security solutions. Consider the following work-related data security developments:

  • Mobile security – With the growth of remote work, the mobile cybersecurity trend continues at full speed. Mobile phones store vast amounts of sensitive data, and businesses are adding new security features to safeguard against outside threats. 

  • Zero Trust approaches – To prevent insider threats and to adjust for remote log-ins and access, this security solution requires all users—in and out of the network—to be continuously authenticated and authorized.

Where are Security Trends Headed?

Data security news continues developing alongside scientific breakthroughs, legal changes, and new international threats. Check out the most pressing security issues and data protection topics of tomorrow:

  • Data privacy – Developments in big data and data science have led to more robust laws governing personal data. Stay up to date with evolving privacy regulations. 

  • AI-driven cyber security – Machine learning techniques effectively analyze vast amounts of data to identify potential network-wide cyber threats. 

  • Stronger critical infrastructure – As state-sponsored, international cyber attack strategies become more sophisticated, countries are improving the cyber resilience of their critical infrastructure—the most basic physical and digital security systems for a country to function.
