What is the Future of Cyber Security in India?

Indian companies are seeing a significant increase in the number of challenges they face in cybersecurity. Amid the shift to mass remote working, organizations have experienced a huge shift in cyber threats.

     

According to sources, the majority of the reputed organizations in India were unprepared for the change. Only a few organizations adopted cybersecurity measures to support the remote working environment.

   

With the growth of cybercrimes and data breaches, new forms of domain expertise are needed. Since we live in an evolving world that is fuelled up with advanced technologies like – Big Data, AI, ML, etc – there is a war between defenders and attackers. Companies need to migrate from traditional methods to protect their IT infrastructure from cyberattacks.

   

Emerging technologies are no doubt, the future of cybersecurity in India. Here is how the advanced technologies and tools change the future of cybersecurity –

             
  • Attacks would be cheap and lucrative

Attacks would become cheaper and lucrative with bots doing most of the activities in finding vulnerabilities. According to a study, 30% of Indian companies are expected to be victims of a cyberattack in the future. It security managers believe that their current defence systems are not sufficient enough to block the future cyberattacks.

     
  • Automated networks

Automated networks are likely to reduce the risk of cyberattacks. With automated scanning and monitoring of connected networks, one can report the animosities and deviations in real-time. The automatic updating of firewalls, endpoints, network, payloads and anti-viruses with the help of AI/ML can be a game-changer in preventing cyberattacks. In such a scenario, companies should look for advanced cybersecurity tools to prevent their digital assets from potential attack.

     
  • Blockchain wave

Blockchain is one of the popular cybersecurity technologies that are likely to grow tremendously in the coming years. The company can leverage a key infrastructure to authenticate the devices with the help of AI and keep the potential attacks at the bay. Organizations are likely to face a lot of phishing scams and hence they need to adopt smart cybersecurity techniques.

       

Bottom Line

   

In the future, companies are likely to create integrated capabilities to address and prevent cyber threats and reduce damage from cyberattacks by using a well-defined governance framework. Companies will need a comprehensive and unified IT security provider for creating cyber-defence network.

   

Looking at the digital trends, we see the cybersecurity as a growing concern in the coming years. Companies should be equipped with better security tools and technologies to prevent major data breaches and cyberattacks.
