Overview

In security, change always equates to risk. Because change is constant, being aware of the key changes that will increase risk is a critical part of being proactive in cyber security.

In reality, security teams control only half of the “Action” parameter. We can’t determine when threats will be developed or launched, and vulnerabilities are driven by weaknesses in people and technology. People change slowly, but technology changes rapidly, and business adoption of new technologies invariably brings new vulnerabilities that enable new threats. Understanding and anticipating business demand for emerging technologies is a key element in successful security programs.

With each new wave of technology, threats tend to come in three forms: denial-ofservice (DoS) attacks, cyber crime and attacks by nation-states.
