Reducing Security Concerns Related to Rapid Digital Transformation
Hikvision Covers Report on Security Concerns Related to Digital Transformation, Financial Sector
The Security magazine article, “How to digitally transform your enterprise—securely,” outlines several major themes to help organizations protect data, reduce security concerns and enhance cybersecurity in the face of rapid digital transformation.
From the article: “Digital transformation has been a major goal of many organizations for some time. However, the pandemic has accelerated timelines from 4-6 years to 4-6 months. Global remote work and increased digital interactions—be it video, voice, or messaging—means an exponential growth in digital footprint for individuals, as well as corporations. Suddenly having to store, process, and move this much data quickly into the cloud and manage the expanded digital footprint requires agility of decision making, cloud native infrastructure, and security and privacy by design implementation and operation.”
Trends to boost cybersecurity from the article include:
- Leverage data in several ways: Organizations can leverage data for business decisions and to empower employees, while also ensuring good cyber hygiene to protect data and maintain compliance with global privacy laws.
- Cultivate a culture of privacy: Create an organizational culture that is focused on privacy and security. The article’s author gives the example of the Zero Trust model, which Hikvision’s senior cybersecurity director explained as a network architecture “that treats the internal network of an organization as a hostile environment by trusting no one.” The article also references “privacy by design,” an approach that incorporates privacy into network systems and technologies.
Making decisions in real-time on a routine, ongoing basis can enable organizations to digitally transform with security in mind. Read the entire article here.
