The Future of Cybersecurity

The Future of Cybersecurity

How worried are you with your organization's cybersecurity? When you envision your business in the future, do you see yourself constantly fighting cyberattacks, or paying ransom? Hopefully not, but what if cybersecurity turns into one of the hardest parts to maintaining a steady business? Below is a look into the future and hypothesize what your organization may need to do to defend against cybercriminals. 

Modern times have gifted us with methods to defending ourselves from cyberattacks. There are solutions available to keep your business secure, and projections show that certain technologies will emerge that will much more effectively protect your business.

Artificial Intelligence 

One of the most effective ways to fight cyberattacks is introducing artificial intelligence where applicable. The employees are one of the weakest links in any business chain; we aren’t recommending dismissing all of your employees and hiring robots as replacements, but by default humans are prone to making mistakes. 

Humans make mistakes that AI simply would not. Modern security solutions need constant monitoring to ensure that they are operating as they should.

In the near future, your business can integrate AI into your security processes. This can resolve some of the common problems. Say Lenny skips work, and does not reassign someone to monitor business security systems. While some employees like Lenny will play hooky from time to time, AI is able to monitor systems 24/7, once they are taught what to keep an eye out for and recognize. They also are able to monitor these systems much more effectively than any human could, including Lenny. 

AI can even go beyond defense, and delve deeper into prevention.

As the world of artificial intelligence continues to be explored, new technology is being implemented in business practices. AI may replace traditional access management processes, replacing passwords entirely. The idea is rather than trusting your employees are using strong password practices for every account, AI will be able to monitor the user’s behaviors, workplace roles, and common actions. If the system recognized any deviations, an additional form of authentication such as biometrics would grant or deny access. 

Like the flat screen TV’s early days, this level of technology has one major obstacle: cost. Nonetheless, as this technology is adopted and explored, the cost may become more feasible for small to medium sized businesses. 

Why 5G Connectivity Needs to Remain on Your Mind

Artificial intelligence promises to advance a wide variety of processes, including the use of 5G and data-intensive tasks. 

With every new device that is connected to the internet, an additional opportunity arises for a cybercriminal to take advantage of poor security standards. The capabilities that 5G connections have need to be heavily considered. Think about this: you’re riding down the highway when suddenly your self-driving car loses all connection due to a cyberattack. Considering that on a daily basis, your self-driving vehicle will equal roughly 3,000 times your daily data output, data overload is a serious security concern. 

While there’s still time before these concerns materialize, there are numerous present-day cybersecurity concerns that your organization needs to anticipate. Macro Systems has the experts you need to protect your data. Give us a call at 703-359-9211 today!
