Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, outlines the top 5 emerging IT security trends likely to affect the way organizations will approach cybersecurity in 2018.
Although external cyber attacks continue to become more sophisticated, the primary security threat still comes from insiders. To keep up with the evolving threat landscape, organizations may have to rethink their security strategies and come up with new approaches to tackling cybersecurity issues. Netwrix predicts that the following trends will play a significant role in 2018:
In 2017, external threats, such as state-sponsored attacks and cloud hacks, were the hottest topics for IT professionals. We expect that in 2018, the main focus will be on insider threats, since rogue or negligent employees and intruders with stolen credentials may pose a bigger risk to security than outsider hackers. Organizations will likely do their best to minimize insider risks — by keeping a closer watch on user activities, analyzing user behavior, and regularly assessing risks to proactively spot weaknesses and improve their security posture.
