Today we show you an infographic with 10 predictions that Earl Perkins, vice president of research at Gartner, has made to improve cybersecurity of companies in the future:
1.- The need to prevent data breaches from public clouds will lead to 20% of companies developing government data security programs.
2.- Companies that prefer mobile native containment instead of third-party options will increase from 20 to 60%. According to Perkins, companies that currently have medium security needs should consider gradually moving to native containment.
3- Until 2018, more than 50% of the Internet of Things (IoT) device manufacturers will not be able to deal with threats in weak authentication methods. Many devices are created without regard to safety and this is a risk.
4.- 40% of the Identity as a Service (IDaaS) implementations will replace the identity and access management (IAM) implementations installed in the companies, compared to the current 10%. This fact will be due to the difficulty and the cost of the IAM infrastructure.
5.- The use of passwords and tokens (additional security devices for internet transactions) in cases of medium risk will be reduced by 55% due to the introduction of recognition technologies.
6.- Until 2020, 99% of the exploited vulnerabilities will continue to be those that ICT and security professionals have already known for at least 1 year. Companies should pay attention to the vulnerabilities they currently have to avoid being the focus of attack in the future.
7.- A third of the successful attacks experienced by companies will be due to shadow ICT resources. These are the ICT resources used within a company without the approval or consent of the ICT department.
8.- 40% of companies dedicated to DevOps will protect their applications by adopting security measures such as self-test, self-diagnosis and self-protection technologies.
9.- 80% of new contracts based on Security Agents for Cloud Access (or CASB: Cloud Access Security Broker), will be packaged with network firewalls, secure gateways and WAF platforms to protect applications Web.
10.- More than 25% of the identified attacks carried out on companies will involve the IoT. According to Perkins, security and ICT professionals must reserve between 5% and 10% of their spending for surveillance and protection of IoT devices.
