Organizations are expected by KPMG analysts to lean more toward digital trust and zero trust implementation to combat cybersecurity threats in 2023, reports VentureBeat.
Establishing and maintaining digital trust will be gaining value among organizations as they seek to keep up with cyber regulations concerning artificial intelligence, digital infrastructure, and supply chain security, as well as transparency in attacks, said KPMG International Global Cybersecurity Leader Akhilesh Tuteja.
On the other hand, KPMG EMA Cybersecurity Leader Dani Michaux said that organizations should consider the shortening of the time window for cyberattack response amid threat actors' increasing use of automation. Growing security threats are poised to prompt organizations to adopt zero trust as they work on achieving perimeter-less security.
"Simply layering more and more protecting controls increasingly risks impeding the business. Getting the right balance between protection and rapid detection and response will be key to success and people need to be at the heart of that design," said KPMG U.S. Cybersecurity Leader Kyle Kappel.
Ukraine has been targeted by Russian threat actors in the new Operation Texontodisinformation campaign that also involved spear-phishing and credential exfiltration tactics, according to The Hacker News.
Record high ransomware and data extortion incidents experienced by Western nations last year have prompted former National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers to call for a reevaluation of their cybersecurity defense strategy.
