his year there are a number of impressive innovations that are aiming to make cyberspace safe

During the first quarter of 2019, as many as 1,903 publicly-disclosed data compromise events took place that resulted in the exposure of more than 1.9 billion records. Judging by how the first three months of the year panned out it is safe to assume that the rest of the year is going to be filled with countless hacking attempts from relentless cyber delinquents. As new cybersecurity threats emerge, new technology and strategies to deal with them are also developed. This year there are a number of impressive innovations that are aiming to make cyberspace as safe and hack-free as possible.  

Cybersecurity to enjoy greater automation

During the remainder of 2019, we are likely to see a significant upsurge in the automation of cybersecurity and data privacy. AI will play a bigger role than ever before in the automation of expert systems as well as in covering various privacy grounds for extensive networks. Standard automation, together with Robotic Process Automation (RPA), will become prevalent in various areas of cybersecurity including incident confinement, analysis, and retort while incidence response and SOC teams will require added automation if they want to match the pace of cyber attacks. Certain security concerns that previously required manual attention will now be automatically facilitated by robots and other machines.

Next generation breach detection

In recent years VPNs have made it increasingly easier for businesses and individuals to keep their data safe by reducing the risk of security breaches and cyber attacks. VPNs are particularly adept at preventing identify theft by allowing for completely anonymous internet connections. Despite the efficacy of VPN technology, hackers are often still able to mine information in networks and systems for months at a time before being detected. Next generation breach detection combines behavioral analytics with state-of-the-art machine learning to detect these data breaches and trace them all the way back to their source. In the past, bespoke attacks were widespread as hackers attacked by examining the defense systems of a network before sending a Trojan horse. The latest breach detection technology concentrates on what occurs once the attack has taken place and then reports on breadcrumbs left behind by the attacker.

Adaptive authentication

Adaptive authentication will continue to blow experts, organizations, and individuals concerned with cybersecurity away with countless innovative ideas and options. When making use of adaptive authentication security risks are no longer viewed as straightforward and static. Instead, it is now known that snoopers, hackers, and other malevolent online entities are able to adapt at breakneck speed to find any loopholes within a system. The purpose of AA is not to predict threats but rather to supply the user with the relevant tools capable of fighting off hackers and cyber attacks. It has also been found that organizations that already make use of adaptive authentication as an active initiative has been able to reduce fraud by as much as 81% while improving their customer authentication experience by as much as 75%.

Thanks to constant innovations in cybersecurity hackers will find it increasingly difficult to execute data breaches. Although these attempts may not all be thwarted, any reduction in successful hacks is a significant step in the right direction.
