Digitisation – The new norm
In today’s age of digitisation, we are constantly making our personal information public via various organisations and entities. Every individual today:
- Has a smartphone or some kind of smart device
- Is connected to an array of social media platforms
- Uses one or the other streaming platforms
- Has a bank account
- Is registered with cab service providers, shopping platform, etc.
If you have ticked even one of the above points, your information is much more public than you ever thought.
Now let’s think about this from a broader perspective. Hundreds of companies have your personal details and advanced digitisation technologies like Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are constantly monitoring your buying pattern, shopping patterns, television watching pattern to understand you better. So, is your data safe?
Today, technology plays a profound role in shaping individuals, governments and businesses. But the same technology leaves our personal database to cyber security risks.
World Economic Forum in its Global Risk Report 2019 ranked massive data fraud and theft at number four and cyberattacks at number five in its list of global threats.
An organisation’s data is constantly under the cyber threat of ransomware, end-point attacks, phishing, and the latest – formjacking. On the other hand, while organisations are increasingly using ML and AI predictive analysis, hackers are using them to enhance the sophistication of their attacks. Targeted attack groups are increasingly focusing on IoT-based ecosystem as a soft entry point, to destroy or wipe a device, steal credentials and data, and intercept organisations’ classified communications.
Creating an ecosystem to be cyber secure
Smart technologies and connected operations are making enterprises more vulnerable to cyber attacks. We cannot stop technological advancements fearing cyber threats. Cyber criminals are getting more ambitious and are constantly evolving hacking techniques.
There is only one way forward. Organisations need to keep their guards up and respond to such attacks by being one step ahead of the game. The key to building a secure organisational architecture is to build an ecosystem of cyber security solutions that best fits your organisational security needs.
An optimal cyber security framework should be built on an ecosystem that can:
1. Identify the modus operandi of cyber threats even before they occur
STL’s analytics-based system churns out actionable insights of over 20 trillion records per hour. Its ML and AI-based architecture auto tracks patterns to identify probable threats.
2. Protect critical infrastructure services
To provide optimal cyber security, STL has created multi-layered security solution to secure every possible vulnerable point.
3. Detect the occurrence of cyber threat event
STL creates an ecosystem of cyber security network not just within its own environment but also within the vendor’s and customer’s environment so as to immediately detect the exact entry point.
4. Respond on time
STL’s future-proof platform with cloud-ready solution implements required actions during a cyber security event to terminate the proliferation of the threat into the system.
5. Recover lost data
STL’s services eliminate data loss while restoring any capabilities or services that were impaired during a cyber security event.
STL creates a holistic cyber security solution to provide unprecedented protection from any kind of cyber breaches.
