As the cybersecurity landscape increases at risk by the day, there are three pillars that are put forward to help manage the risks.
An attack on the SolarWinds software used by the U.S. government has officials scrambling to protect the government and corporate secrets from Russia.
“It’s really highlighted the investments we need to make in cybersecurity to have the visibility to block these attacks in the future,” Anne Neuberger, the newly appointed deputy national security adviser for cyber and emergency technology said Wednesday at a White House briefing.
Following the incident, there is likely going to be an increase in spending on cybersecurity to protect the resources and create new defences.
As defenders develop new tools and techniques such as AI to ward off hackers, the hackers too are in the race to develop malware to exploit the defenders. To tackle the fast moving world of cyber threats and attacks, some cyber firms are using AI to detect and mitigate.
