to the most recent Presidential order regarding security: Executive
Order 14028 and what it states are the most formidable
cyber-security threats (and what they are now expecting you to do to meet NIST and other compliance standards). It will force many to adapt or face
non-compliance and possibly loss of cyber insurance (or worse, all your insurance coverage). We're seeing it creep up already in certain industries.

initiatives important to thwart it all:

1) Zero-Trust

Immutable file storage and backup.

Non-signature-based AV (AI for all your security/endpoints).

Improved email security/control/training to better handle phishing/Malware and
other attacks.

Air gapping data.

Better resiliency to withstand Denial of Service attacks which are

and lowest on everyone's list - better, more secure password management. Still there after all these years.

1. [True!] Cloud Security hardening/assessment. 

2. AI (for massive data processing).

3. Data (protection) and breaches.

4. eGRC (enterprise GRC integrated with eRM and vendor-neutral xLAP visual presentation platform).

5. Collective Intelligence (MISP/Hive and similar platforms for normalization).

1) Security in endpoints (especially because of remote work), especially to protect from phishing, Business Email Compromise (BEC), and ransomware.

2) Security data in transit (use SDP to protect, replace VPNs).

3) Security in Cloud adoption with security in DevOps (use Cloud-based SOCs with their sensors).

4) Security in SaaS applications (protection of SaaS-specific applications, CRM, AI, CDP, etc.).

5) Security in crypto transactions.

In the last few years, attackers have been looking for new ways to abuse companies by targeting their employees and users and exploiting their weak security procedures.

Here is a list of potential security trends that every individual, business, or organization should be aware of and take appropriate security precautions to avoid:

- Attack surface expansion

- Identity system defense

- Digital supply chain risk

- Vendor consolidation

- Cybersecurity mesh

- Distributed decisions

The top ones are:

1) The remote workforce will continue to grow and more attacks will target Work-From-Home users.

2) Zero-trust will gain more prominence.

3) Supply chain still remains a major vulnerability area and we will see a substantial increase in supply chain attacks.

4) IoT and OT will see more targeted attacks that will make headlines.

5) Cybercriminals will continue to use new technologies like AI - which means organizations need to be proactive to stay secure

@Bret Mantey​ has nailed it. 

Zero trust is the absolute necessary mind-shift we need to undergo. We can no longer afford to bank on a 'secure source' or a 'trusted partner', as these may well be already compromised, unknowingly.

A new year is always a good opportunity to pause and predict what the cybersecurity landscape will look like in the future. Cybersecurity predictions are getting more and more accurate each year. Why do we think so? Simply because trends are getting more and more transparent and technology is getting more and more advanced. So, let’s see the top 5 cybersecurity trends that will dominate in 2022.

1. Proliferation of AI and machine learning in cybersecurity

Cybersecurity Solutions will increasingly rely on AI and machine learning to detect and respond to threats.

2. Increased use of automation

Automated tools will be used more extensively to help manage security risks.

3. More widespread use of blockchain technology

Blockchain will play an increasingly important role in cybersecurity, helping to secure data and transactions.

4. Greater focus on user training and awareness

Users will need to be better educated about cyber threats and how to protect themselves against them.

5. Growing importance of incident response planning

Organizations will need to have effective incident response plans in place in order to react quickly to cyber incidents and mitigate the damage they cause.

1. Proliferation of ransomware and data theft: The use of ransomware will continue to increase in 2022, as will the theft of sensitive data.

2. Increased sophistication of cyberattacks: Cybercriminals will become more adept at launching sophisticated attacks that are difficult to detect and prevent.

3. Emergence of AI and machine learning in cybersecurity: AI and machine learning will be increasingly used to bolster cybersecurity defenses and identify malicious activity.

4. Growing popularity of cloud-based security solutions: Cloud-based security solutions will become more popular as businesses move to the cloud for their computing needs.

5. Increased focus on mobile security: With more people using smartphones and other mobile devices for business and personal activities, mobile security will.

Top brands don't mean best or most cost-effective. My advice is to look a bit further before you make a decision. Evidence suggests that most top brands are pretty good at detecting and blocking malicious attachments, best case letting through 1%, but can be worse than 50% when it comes to detecting malicious links in the text of the email.  There are numerous less well-known vendors with lower-cost AI-based solutions that have a far better success rate, also providing employees the ability to report on suspect emails which auto-removes them from other staff members' inboxes until they have been properly assessed. Some will provide a visual risk score to the recipient to give them advance warning to be more cautious. Combining this kind of capability with staff awareness products keeps your vendor list lower and further improves efficiency. For around £2 GBP per user per month (less than $3) we provide different vendors depending upon the customer's environment but provided as a managed service. This allows our customers to outsource some of the monitoring and day-to-day management, spread the cost on a monthly basis, and flex how many licences they need on a monthly basis too i.e. if you drop 20 users don't pay for them but if you increase by 20 you don't need complex co-termination and pro rata discussions.

I only can recommend Cisco because it´s the only one with which I'd worked enough. I think it is powerful enough and has a lot of possibilities. In addition, to a great support team.
