Organizations must think about how they can use white hat hackers and protect their critical assets.
If organizations want to get ahead of cybersecurity threats, or at least not fall too far behind malicious actors, they need to start thinking about IT security differently.
That was a key takeaway from two keynote speakers at the CDW Protect SummIT in Phoenix. Businesses large and small need to take a page from hackers and learn lessons from their behavior, and must also shift their focus from a perimeter-based defense to a data-centric one, they said.
Organizations can be more nimble in their cybersecurity efforts by building security solutions that protect their critical assets, and by challenging old dogmas about security culture, such as the notion that security pros “cannot fix the user.”
“We need to do things significantly differently,” said Keren Elazari, a renowned cybersecurity analyst, author and researcher. “We cannot keep calm and carry on.”
Alyssa Miller, manager of the information security solutions practice at CDW, also urged the conference attendees to think about security differently. According to Research and Markets, the global cybersecurity industry is expected to grow to $177 billion by 2025, Miller noted. There are thousands of cybersecurity tools available, including artificial intelligence-based solutions and advanced endpoint security products.
