2020 was in many ways heralded as a breakthrough year before it began – it was the year that the promise of 5G was to be realised; low-power IoT devices, robots and drones would take over menial and dangerous jobs; and researchers would make significant headways in quantum computing.
Instead, we got a pandemic that still rages and unprecedented data breaches.
Work from home became mandatory government regulation rather than an easily ignored nag from HR, for which massive changes in security posture were necessitated. Whatever was left of the network perimeter disappeared entirely, and the chaos of devices employees were using to communicate with their colleagues made pre-pandemic shadow IT pale in comparison.
Amidst all this, no single job function has been busier than the CISO. They have had to deal with the disruption in enterprise operations that forced new ways of ensuring data and devices remained secure. They then also had to work through upheaval in their own department as budgets were cut, team members were dispersed over regions in lockdown and cyberthreats specific to the pandemic systematically tore through barriers that simply weren’t ready for COVID-era cyberwars.
