What is the Future of Cyber Security in India?

Do you know the future of cyber security in India will have a heavy focus on using AI.  Well, the automated systems are likely monitor, prevent and manage cyber attack in real time.    

Indian companies are seeing a significant increase in the number of challenges they face in cyber security. 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 cyber security measures to support the remote working environment.

 

How the future of cyber security in India will look like?

 

With the growth of cyber crimes and data breaches, there is a requirement of new technologies. Since we live in an evolving world that is fueled 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 cyber attacks.

According to the report developed by Data Security Council of India, over half billion people in India are using internet. With the increase in number of internet users, cyber criminals have shifted their focus to India. There is a greater focus on pushing organizations into adopting minimal security  standards.

No doubt, emerging technologies are the future of cyber security in India. Here is how the advanced technologies and tools change the future of cyber security –

  • 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 will be victims of a cyber attack in the future. It security managers believe that their current defense systems are not sufficient enough to block the future cyber attacks.

     
  • Automated networks

Automated networks are likely to reduce the risk of cyber attacks. 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 cyber attacks. In such a scenario, companies should look for advanced cyber security tools to prevent their digital assets from potential attack.

     
  • Block chain wave

Block chain is one of the popular cyber security 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 cyber security techniques.

       

Bottom Line

   

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

   

Looking at the digital trends, we see the cyber security as a growing concern in the coming years. Companies equip with better security tools and technologies to prevent major data breaches and cyber attacks.
