2022 Predictions

Prediction #1

comma

Securing Cloud Adoption: As the saying goes, you are only as strong as your weakest link. Many businesses who jump onto the Cloud adoption bandwagon will fail to realize that it is essential to ensure that their configuration and controls of cloud services must be thoroughly considered and tested. The 3Ms (Misconfiguration, Mistakes, and Mismanagement) will continue to be a grave error of many and cause unauthorized data breaches. Businesses should consider benchmarking their Cloud configurations against practices such as CIS benchmarks. by Wai Kit Cheah

Prediction #2

comma

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE): As companies transform their businesses through this pandemic cycle to evolve into a more digitized business model, cloud adoption will increase. Many of them are concerned about their ability to secure their cloud consumption, which will drive a growing adoption of Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) to secure cloud access and virtual workloads. However, it will not be an easy adoption, as it needs pre-requisites to be successful, such as an acceptable use policy, a clearly defined cloud usage policy, and other regulations. Enterprises should first develop a strong foundation and set of administrative controls before implementing any technology. After all, technology is merely one tenet of cybersecurity control. by Wai Kit Cheah

Prediction #3

comma

Cloud services will be a primary target for the more sophisticated state and non-state actors seeking to maximize their exploitation efforts. Supply chain attacks will likely be the focal point of these attacks. They have historically demonstrated that such services offer potential entry into more organizations in different sectors and industries once compromised. Ransomware attacks are a natural fit to be included in cloud service attacks, requiring only initial access before being able to spread within the cloud community. by Emilio Iasiello

Prediction #4

comma

The cybersecurity insurance industry will see significant growth, but so will their premiums and deductibles. This will be driven by the increased frequency of industry data breaches and associated costs. Hopefully, that means organizations will realize the value of their brand and conversely try to minimize brand damage in the case of a possible breach. by George Do
