Cybercrimes have evolved rapidly over the last few years, especially amid the pandemic. Cybercriminals are no longer isolated and loosely organized amateurs. They are innovative and sophisticated, posing a significant risk to the business. In this article at Analytics Insight, Priya Dialani explains how organizations can make their cybersecurity more agile and dynamic.
Agile Cybersecurity Strategies
Develop an Agile and Dynamic Approach
This approach must be designed in a way that it enables the organizations to adjust their cybersecurity strategy according to the latest threats, risks, and attack surface. This must be further combined with an ‘outside-in’ perspective, where the external threat landscape is continuously monitored and evaluated against an organization’s cybersecurity technology, processes, and people. Organizations must ensure to assess, evaluate, and mitigate risk by periodic evaluation of the cybersecurity strategy.
Have an ‘Agile’ Cybersecurity Strategy
To address the risk of new external threats, it is unrealistic and economically unfeasible to change the security infrastructure materially, every time there is a new class of threats. Therefore, it is important to implement an ‘agile’ and ‘transitional’ cybersecurity strategy that can be re-evaluated for its efficacy.
Make Real-Time Risk Management Updates
You may have regular risk management and audit exercises, but to build a truly agile cybersecurity strategy, risk management updates should be made in real-time.
Stay Abreast of Cyber Trends
To stay ahead of the competitors, you must understand the cyber events relevant to the industry, the technology your enterprise is using, and the geographical location in which you are operating. This will help you get pertinent insights that can guide your strategy and roadmap.
Embrace ‘API-driven Security’
“By removing the human component from the procedure, you set up a ceaseless integration philosophy, which takes into consideration consistency of delivery,” says Priya. Additionally, survey the structure and programs that are dependent on external intelligence. Based on these information sources, change the strategies accordingly.
