Topic: Cybersecurity Skills Essential For Combating Cyber Risks Today
Abstract: With institutions and businesses of all sizes relying heavily on computerized operations to manage their daily needs, the threat to data security is increasing rapidly. While technological advancements continue transforming the digital infrastructure, threat actors ramp up their hacking efforts by incorporating novel technologies. The parallel shift caused due to incorporation of cloud and IoT has created a new frontier for both cybercriminals and security teams to discover gaps and vulnerabilities. The increase in the volume of attacks requires cybersecurity professionals to automate many of the known security processes to afford more time to analyze the shift in the cyberthreat trends and behavior of the attacker. Also, the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning provides cybersecurity teams the means to tackle highly sophisticated threats that probably use similar technologies for their purpose. The current webinar highlights the essential technologies and associated skills that cybersecurity professionals and teams should incorporate to protect the infrastructure and data from outsider and insider threats.
- How cloud computing and IoT have shifted the security posture of the business
