Cyber security is quickly becoming a part of everyday life. We see data breaches weekly – either reported timely or not – with much finger pointing, and many times, not with many concrete solutions. Education, creating robust strategies and simply talking can be the beginning building blocks to data protection. Here we are building the conversation around the future of cyber security, and predicting and analyzing the best strategies to win this cyber protection ‘game.’ We reached out to cyber security experts in the field to help us get a grasp on our posed question. We asked for them to share important cyber security projections in the next five years. Below you’ll find the responses to the question we posed:

This is where cyber security will be in 5 years…

  1. As society becomes increasingly integrated, especially in the area of IoT (the internet of things), we will see a continued shift away from traditional deterrence and prevention cyber security frameworks towards more modern methodologies emphasizing on containment and remediation.
  2. An increased demand for legislation. Just as those U.S. based companies offering health insurance benefits are required to comply with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act), companies like Equifax that routinely collect, store, and aggregate subscriber personally identifiable information (PII) will be required to conform to strict federal data retention and incident reporting requirements.
  3. An increase of major breaches as corporations begin to outsource liability and responsibility of fines, fees, and penalties resultant of such breaches in the form of cyber insurance. To counter this trend, these insurance providers will need to price their policies in such a way that the insurance supplements, rather than replaces, robust security frameworks. The inherent challenge of that however is defining what that standard will be. Cyber security, much like life, requires collaboration.
