As we enter the digital age, organizations have become much more vulnerable to cyber threats. In the period from November 2020 to October 2021, almost 24 thousand cyber security incidents were detected. Sharing best practices for protecting critical infrastructure can help organizations maintain the resilience of their business.
Security is especially important in the cloud, where organizations are moving more and more of their operations. This includes using tools to protect data, networks and applications in the cloud, as well as solutions to protect against malicious players. The third edition of the Cybersecurity Forum for the Central and Eastern Europe region, organized online on March 28, 2023 by the company Crayon, which is in the Top 10 partners of Microsoft on a global scale, focuses precisely on the protection of cloud and hybrid environments of organizations .
Gartner’s analyzes and forecasts highlight the need for a holistic, coordinated security strategy due to the increasingly complex cyber threat landscape in recent years, which has been characterized by a volatile geopolitical environment, including the war in Ukraine. Security and risk management have become a board-level concern for organizations.
By 2025, 40 percent of boards of directors will have a dedicated cybersecurity committee overseen by a qualified board member, Gartner predicts. At the same time, 60% of organizations will use cybersecurity risk as a primary determinant of third-party transactions and business engagements. Expert analysis suggests that by 2024, organizations that adopt a network architecture for cybersecurity will reduce the financial impact of security incidents by an average of 90%.
