These questions are been asked by security and risk management experts frequently. However, the real question lies here, how it’s gonna increase your business value by reducing the risk for the organization. Along with a constant shift in the security landscape of the organization.

Therefore, here are some of the top 10 security projects based on the forecast made by Gartner in line with the latest adjustments that happened due to the current pandemic.

Ensuring complete security of your remote workforce by assessing and reviewing in case any access levels were changed during the initial phases and if any security measures are delaying the work.
Using threat intelligence, attacker activity trackers, and internal assets to focus on vulnerabilities that are actually usable and exploitable. Risk-based vulnerability management will provide a broader view of real organizational level risk.
Extended detection and response (XDR) is a unified security and incident response platform collecting valuable resources and data from various proprietary components. Better security outcomes can be achieved through XDR as it consolidates multiple security products.
Due to the dynamic structure of cloud applications, they need an automated DevSecOps style of security. Common controls across IaasS and PaaS must be ensured by the organizations. Along with automated assessment and remediation support. Cloud security posture management can be challenging without ensuring policy uniformity throughout the cloud security approaches.
Simplify cloud access controls through a CASB. Policy enforcement and active blocking are offered with the help of real-time enforcement through an in-line proxy. This helps in understanding access to security in a much better way.
Domain-Based Message Authentication (DMARC) is an email authentication policy. With organizations using email as a single source of verification, users usually find it difficult to differentiate between a legit and a fake message. Moreover, though DMARC is not the complete solution for email security, however, it offers an additional layer of security, trust, and verification.
With the goal to improve trust and the user experience, Passwordless authentication can offer a better solution for security. As some times, employees may have the same password for their work as well as personal email.
Ensure throughout Data classification and protection as every data is different. Bring in definitions, frameworks, and policies to ensure the correctness of the process before starting to layer in the security technologies.
Have a perfect and Balanced Workforce competencies assessment. Identify six to seven must-have skills in a candidate to provide the right people with the right roles and skills. Conduct softer skill assessments, cyber-ranging, and cyber simulations.
Sometimes, risk assessments are done either on a limited basis or are skipped. Automating security risk assessments would help security experts react effectively and efficiently towards risks related to security operations.
