Data security is an ongoing problem that will always be present. The level of protection goes up and down, and it depends on the current tech and how fast security agencies can update their software. This problem will plague businesses as well as individuals in the future as well because the money is always invested in protection rather than prevention.
Some parties are investing their money into prevention, and it has mixed results. Some succeed in preventing cyber-attacks, while others fail miserably. A good thing about this is that the fails aren’t causing any losses as they happen in controlled environments.
Responding to the increased security demand
The best response for an excellent protection of the data was the Cloud security encryption. But it wasn’t perfect until several months ago. The complex encryption of the data on the Cloud made it possible to protect it from hackers, but they found holes in those defenses. Those holes were located in the transfer of the data. Hackers couldn’t do anything to your documents while they were on the Cloud server, but it was easy to intercept the transmission of the same.
Cloud tech advanced, and they found a way to transfer files in an encrypted state. This made it almost impossible for hackers to steal them. They couldn’t do anything with them even if they did, as you are the only one that holds the key for decryption.
Automation of the security
The next obvious step in the development of the internet security is its automation. That tech isn’t excellent at the moment, and you have to rely on the human response if you want to prevent hackers from accomplishing their goals. But human response time is not enough to avoid damage that hackers do.
Many parties have started developing automated security systems that would react faster than it is humanly possible. The success in the development of such systems would mean a lot to the overall state of the cyber-defense. Automated systems will be able to prevent hackers from gaining access to your files. It could lock all access routes to your data before the hacker manages to slip through.
