For the past few years, iDefense has highlighted cyber security disruptors in our annual Threats and Trends report. In the commercial world, the notion of a business disruptor centers on ideas or technologies that fundamentally change the way a business sector operates. One example is the combination of iTunes and the iPod. Other companies sold digital music before Apple Inc. came up with this combination at the right price point, but once they did, they fundamentally changed how people purchase music. That is a business disruptor. Similar to business disruptors, a cyber security disruptor is an idea or technology coming down the pipe that will fundamentally change how enterprise security staffs protect their environments. These are technologies that will impact us within the next five to 10 years.
I recently filmed the below video highlighting three cyber security disruptors that people should be looking at now. Along with describing how these disruptors will impact enterprises, there are tips for how to begin dealing with these impacts now:
Cyber Security Disruptors:
- Information Overload
- Data Protection
- Transition from IPv4 to IPv6
What are some other cyber security disruptors that you are concerned with and what, if anything, are you doing to address them?
