How to Tackle Security Risks in Digital Transformation
July 11, 2020
Every business in the current era of digital transformation face this crucial question: Are you going to let digital risk hold you back from adopting new technologies, or are you going to manage the risks and move forward?
Data breaches and cyber-attacks have grown rapidly in the past several years, with attacks becoming more sophisticated and meticulous. Businesses across the world, irrespective of their industry or organization size experience data loss and malware attacks. Organizations that do not have sturdy cybersecurity policies or advanced security solutions are prone to these attacks. What makes the business more vulnerable to such attacks is their lack of resources and technical capabilities to tackle them.
As businesses move into a digital ecosystem, there are many ways in which hackers try to invade a business- from shared devices to mobile apps via messages and emails. And unfortunately, the traditional security systems that they have relied on, such as firewalls, anti-malware systems and sandboxes would no longer suffice.
According to a recent report on Cybersecurity in the Age of Digital Transformation, cybersecurity is the top challenge and the top concern for CIOs and CISOs planning to engage in digital projects. Implementation of innovative technologies such as AI/ML, cloud, IoT, etc. involves a hefty amount of data. Businesses require advanced security solutions that are capable to scan all the data and protect the systems from possible attacks or malware.
Managing the Digital Risk
Businesses need to develop security strategies to mitigate the risks associated with transforming into a digital organization. The CIO and CISO of the organization must adopt a strategic approach and align their security strategy to the business priorities, objectives, and values. The security teams of the organization must have a complete understanding of the risks involved in the process. Every organization needs to have a Security Operations Center (SOC) team to prevent, detect and remediate threats. These teams must set priorities and make effective decisions without hampering customer experience.
