Cyber Security is gaining visibility and attention all over the world, in almost every newspaper, article or news-site you can read about D-DOS attacks, vulnerabilities, exploits, ransomware, and crypto jacking. No wonder that the Security BootCamp in Rotterdam attracted more than a 1,000 professionals in the Cyber or IT or OT security domain.
Over the course of the 2-day event in Rotterdam (very well organized we may add), we spoke to hundreds of IT professionals, security architects, CISO’s, DPO’s and CIO’s who all shared their overall concerns with us.
The top 3 concerns or point of views that we took back from the event are:
- 100% prevention simply does not work, Cyber Security or I(O)T Security is cat and mouse game. The defender prevents something, the attacker finds a new way, it is the nature of the game...
- That is the reason that DETECTION is becoming more and more important. Simply look at the adoption rates of SIEM systems and you can see exactly that trend
- The entire market is very much engaged with the bottom-up level of prevention & monitoring
Think about all the different solutions and vendors in the area of network, traffic, ports, virus, email, endpoints... But who is looking after your CROWN JEWELS? Great question!
Who is providing transparency, insight, and detection of your business application systems that run your entire company? Another great question
The market is maturing rapidly and organizations and security professionals start to realize that perhaps protecting your most precious (but very often still vulnerable) ERP system could be a smart idea.
It is not only the external threat you need to be aware of, research is showing that roughly 60% of exploits and threats are really caused by internal factors, lack of process, lack of discipline, lack of configuration, or simply the fact that people do make mistakes and forget things.
To the many visitors on our agileSI™ booth, we thank you for all the talks, the interest in ERP Security and the exchange of ideas. Talk to you soon, and see you next year !!!
