Even if your business has a cyber security policy and is using different technology and software, it’s essential to examine it and make sure that it’s still fit for purpose.

This is the message that came out of a RSAC 365 Innovation Showcase webinar, with Infosecurity Magazine reporting that one of the participants pointed to the rise in remote working as providing more potential weak points for hackers to exploit.

Founder and managing director of Allegis Cyber Robert Ackerman Jr explained that this “virtualisation” of cyber security perimeters in recent months has left many organisations vulnerable to cyber attacks.

“One of the things we’ve seen over the last year open up as an entirely new area of innovation in cyber security is how you get visibility into your workloads in that hybrid environment,” he added.

Meanwhile, Mark Kraynal, founding partner at aCrew Capital, told the event that the challenge will be striking a balance between maintaining security and enabling workers to do their jobs without causing unnecessary friction. He also highlighted the important role developers should be taking in cyber security.

In December last year, we explored some of the key trends expected in the cyber security field, including cyber criminals continuing to take advantage of the “new normal” as both businesses and individuals adjust to remote and hybrid ways of working.
