Trends that will reshape organizational security

A new SANS Institute paper looks at four key technology trends that will have the most impact on cybersecurity programs.

The aim of the paper, entitled 2014 Trends That Will Reshape Organizational Security, is ‘to give security managers information to facilitate focusing their investments on the areas that are mostly likely to impact their organizations and customers over the next several years’.

The major components of risk are threats and vulnerabilities, and risk levels go through cycles as threats and vulnerabilities wax and wane. The major factors that cause those elements to vary are changes in technology and changes in business processes.

The paper begins by analyzing the relevant changes in those areas and then derives the four key technology trends that will cause the most impact on cybersecurity programs. These are:

  • Choose your own IT (CYOIT);
  • Increased virtualization and use of cloud and software-as a-service (SaaS);
  • Supply chain integrity worries;
  • The Internet of Things/Everything.
