2024 RSA Recap: Centering on Cyber Resilience

May 16, 2024  |  Sundhar Annamalai

Cyber resilience is becoming increasingly complex to achieve with the changing nature of computing. Appropriate for this year’s conference theme, organizations are exploring “the art of the possible”, ushering in an era of dynamic computing as they explore new technologies. Simultaneously, as innovation expands and computing becomes more dynamic, more threats become possible – thus, the approach to securing business environments must also evolve.

As part of this year’s conference, I led a keynote presentation around the possibilities, risks, and rewards of cyber tech convergence. We explored the risks and rewards of cyber technology convergence and integration across network & security operations. More specifically, we looked into the future of more open, adaptable security architectures, and what this means for security teams.

LevelBlue Research Reveals New Trends for Cyber Resilience

This year, we also launched the inaugural LevelBlue Futures™ Report: Beyond the Barriers to Cyber Resilience. Led by Theresa Lanowitz, Chief Evangelist of AT&T Cybersecurity / LevelBlue, we hosted an in-depth session based on our research that examined the complexities of dynamic computing. This included an analysis of how dynamic computing merges IT and business operations, taps into data-driven decision-making, and redefines cyber resilience for the modern era. Some of the notable findings she discussed include:

  • 85% of respondents say computing innovation is increasing risk, while 74% confirmed that the opportunity of computing innovation outweighs the corresponding increase in cybersecurity risk.
  • The adoption of Cybersecurity-as-a-Service (CSaaS) is on the rise, with 32% of organizations opting to outsource their cybersecurity needs rather than managing them in-house.
  • 66% of respondents share cybersecurity is an afterthought, while another 64% say cybersecurity is siloed. This isn’t surprising when 61% say there is a lack of understanding of cybersecurity at the board level.

Theresa was also featured live on-site discussing these findings with prominent cyber media in attendance. She emphasized what today’s cyber resilience barriers look like and what new resilience challenges are promised for tomorrow. Be sure to check out some of those interviews below.
