“While the tactics are similar and goals are the same — reduce risk, protect confidential data, meet compliance requirements, and the like — the cloud adds complexity that completely changes the dynamic. The cloud’s architecture, lack of change controls, and subtle and not-so-subtle differences in various cloud platforms’ basic design and operations make cloud security more complex”


Why Companies Are Struggling With Cybersecurity: Big Players In Bad Situations

“Names like T-Mobile, Capital One, TikTok, MGM, and Prospect Medical stand out among the casualties of malicious cyber events. These situations, where tech titans with thousands of cybersecurity experts find themselves grappling with cyberattacks they couldn’t fully comprehend, stick out like a sore thumb.”


Can We Rely On AI Cybersecurity – Costs & Disadvantages

“For forward-thinking enterprises, marrying AI’s capabilities with cybersecurity while maintaining a reasonable approach can redefine digital protection standards.

“One of the main goals of CSF is to allow organizations to build their cybersecurity strategy by identifying risk and improving the process of risk management. The updated framework will emphasize improved risk management — crucial in the modern cybersecurity landscape.”


How to Get Your Board On Board With Cybersecurity
