How Cybersecurity Moved from Being Government Agenda to Enterprise Priority

As a cybersecurity services provider company, we came across an interesting article on WEF that is worth sharing.

Even as governments rapidly adopt modern information security techniques, many enterprises lag. They continue with the patchwork or lock-and-moat approach to security. Looking at the information in the context of larger cyber warfare techniques; activating enterprise and industry response to cybersecurity is an idea whose time has come.

There are certain challenges that enterprises need to address before they can get to put this vision into action.

  • The pressure of rapid digitization
    This is especially true in the face of the pandemic. Organizations have had to change their ways of working almost overnight. Digital transformation at the workplace became a matter of now or never. However, in the race to digitize, cybersecurity often takes a backseat. That needs to change.
  • Fragmented regulations
    Although governments’ approach to cybersecurity globally is highly sophisticated, regulations continue to be fragmented and different as per geographies. In a flat world like ours, where most work and workforce are now location-agnostic, fragmented regulations can often throw a spanner in building formidable enterprise security.
  • Lack of expertise
    Even though cybersecurity is high on the agenda for enterprises, the skills they have access to don’t quite match up to those at the end of the intruders. Upskilling in the cybersecurity space is an urgent need now, without which, enterprises will continue to be laggards in cyber readiness.

Just as WEF, Soft-Tech is committed to bringing organizations to the table and discuss the long-term implications of weak enterprise security, challenges, and vision to tighten cybersecurity postures across business entities and government.

Where does this leave you as an enterprise? What can you change and how can you address the challenges that lie ahead of you?
