Safeguarding sensitive data has become more critical than ever. With the surge in cyber threats, organizations face not only immediate financial consequences but also long-lasting damage to their reputation. We heard from Kris Lahiri, Co-Founder and Chief Security Officer, Egnyte, about what organizations should prioritize in today's hybrid work environment.
"In today's hybrid work environment, prioritizing cybersecurity is critical. Cyber threats are intensifying, with severe and long-lasting impacts on businesses. Yet, many organizational leaders still remain in the dark when it comes to protecting and managing their content. As we observe Cybersecurity Awareness Month, it’s important to remember that cybersecurity is not just about checking boxes. The frequency and scale of cyber attacks have continued to skyrocket, along with the financial toll and damage to brand reputation. Unfortunately, many organizations lack the proper tools to detect these attacks. Business leaders must also understand that the threat landscape is rapidly changing. Companies can improve their cybersecurity posture by combining foundational practices with cutting-edge technologies. Leveraging secure solutions doesn’t have to be complicated or robust to ensure safer data transactions and achieve unparalleled insights into content usage and access. Overall, businesses can avoid becoming a statistic and refine their data management strategies by making cybersecurity a team sport so that it is an integral part of their employees' daily lives through education and prevention."
