Zeki Turedi , CTO EMEA , CrowdStrike region . Most notably , a proportion of organisations are still sceptical about cloud technologies – or feel their hands are tied when making the right technology choices due to misunderstanding or confusion around local or regional regulations and privacy requirements .
These attitudes will change over time . In fact , there can be no privacy without security . Data that has been stolen or leaked is no longer private , no matter what laws or regulations might apply . In turn , modern technology is needed to solve a modern threat , only nextgeneration , cloud-based cybersecurity solutions , drawing on Big Data from across the globe , are equal to the task of keeping any kind of data secure .
Many countries across the globe expect their economies to approach recession this year . Cost-cutting will be discussed at many companies and cybersecurity budgets having risen – on average – for many successive years will certainly be under scrutiny . Reducing and consolidating the number of licensed products in the area may well make sense , although maintaining the best levels of security is not negotiable at any company .
Notwithstanding , many companies have far more tools than they need . Our own discussions with CISOs suggest it ’ s not uncommon for companies to have multiple licensed cybersecurity products at their disposal . This isn ’ t rendering them immune to attack and , in fact , security levels and team performance are suffering at many organisations due to redundant or excessive notifications and checks . Working towards a consolidated single point of truth through a united platform will not only yield cost savings , but also productivity and performance gains for cybersecurity analysts . www . intelligentciso . com
