In the last decade, the number of cyberattacks has increased tremendously. The much-needed solution at this moment is to engage influential bodies in the matter to formulate a mechanism that can help reduce cyberattacks.
Usually, some loopholes lead to exploitation from the attacker’s side. If there are no loopholes, there won’t be any chance for someone to attack the digital space.
There needs to be a check and balance of the measures being taken in this regard. Here’s how a system’s approach can impact the future of cybersecurity.
A Multidimensional System
In the current era, almost everything seems connected to one another. Even the analog systems somewhere depend on a digital base for their working. In such a connected world, there are even more chances for an impactful cyberattack, and the drawback is that the impact will be bigger since the systems being connected to each other will lead to a widespread impact.
While the connected system has improved work efficiency to a great extent, the increased sensitivity to cyberattacks requires a security system that is efficient and connected enough to ensure that the security remains intact and no attacker finds a loophole anywhere.
Since this greater impact of cyber attacks can even be life-threatening, there is a need to develop a system that covers all the systems and considers all loopholes that can be a single cause leading to a major cyber attack. Suppose such a system is to be developed; in that case, team heads need to be attentive to the current events in the world of cyberattacks and cybersecurity to minimize the impact as much as possible.
Whatever the approach may be taken, the ultimate goal should be the security of all connected systems so that the attack on one system does not hamper the efficiency of all connected ones.
Rating Risk Scenarios
A very well-designed approach to the matter is formulating risk factors associated with each scenario. In order to execute this approach effectively, expert teams are required to associate certain situations with potential risk factors that can lead to a security breach.
After listing the risk factors, they need to be ranked in such a way that the teams can prioritize the risk factors that need to be addressed. In this way, the highest potential risk factors can be addressed on the most prioritized basis.
The formulation of these risk factor scenarios will give a bigger picture of each place where a potential cyberattack might occur. Fixing it beforehand will enable teams to be well aware all the time so that security can be kept intact as it should be.
With the constant innovation in the ways of cyber attacking, there definitely needs to be a way that can be effective in diminishing the greater level of impact of these cyber attacks on the connected and multidimensional systems. So the complexity of a solution for the cyberattack significantly depends on the increasing complexity of the digital data breaching and diverse approaches to cyber-attacks all over the world.
