Securetech and cyber security: Trends to track in 2019
10 Cyber Security trends we can expect to see in 2019
In the digital age, it makes sense that many of the greatest security challenges facing individuals, organisations and even countries are digital too. As we interact more and more online, so cyber security becomes a necessity.
At KPMG Matchi, our initial focus on sourcing fintech solutions and matching them to financial service providers and other large organisations naturally exposed us to the need for cyber and digital security solutions. The financial sector is a natural target for cyber criminals, and so it’s been a natural progression for us to begin to leverage our capabilities developed in fintech, regtech and mobility solutions in the securtech space too.
KPMG UK has produced some helpful thought leadership on the subject of cyber security, including an article by David Ferbrache, chief technology officer in KPMG’s cyber security practice, which highlights 10 cyber security trends we can expect to see in 2019.
These include a global focus on protecting against cyber warfare (with recent US intelligence worldwide threat assessments suggesting that 33 countries now have cyber attack capabilities – up from just 14 in 2012), as well as the topical issue of fake news.
The article also touches on the lack of consensus around cyber law, the role of crypto currencies and the increasing need for agility, among other things.
