To say 2017 was a big year for cybersecurity is a vast understatement. From the massive data breaches involving Equifax, Uber and Deloitte, to an ever-increasing number of new threats, the year has been one long lesson for organizations of all sizes that you can’t have enough protection.
“Cybercrime is becoming more and more sophisticated,” said Gregg Henebry, Cybereason’s vice president of channels. “It’s a lucrative business, increasing in both frequency and in damage, and thus is becoming a huge business for the adversaries. It’s not just impacting small businesses that don’t have the necessary tools; it’s impacting large corporations and ultimately disrupting organizations of all sizes, corporate earnings and shareholder value.”
Ankur Laoria, strategic solutions leader at Alfresco, said this year showed everyone just how vulnerable corporations are to cyberattacks.
“One thing is certain,” he said. “There will likely be more cyberattacks from bad actors in 2018. But, it will also be the year that corporations finally sit up and take notice of their systems, and how they store and keep data safe. One big catalyst: Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect mid-year and it’s likely to have a ripple effect around the world.”
