Secure Network Video Series, Part 3: Cybersecurity Challenges

Of all the ways to take the current pulse of the cybersecurity community and understand their most important concerns at any moment, one of the simplest and most common is to ask, “What keeps you awake at night?” In part three of this video series we recently launched, I give my answer to this question.

My response highlights an enduring paradox of the way we use the public internet today:  It was never originally designed to be a completely secure and validated environment, and every effort since to make it one has been (at best) an adaptation. Yet despite this fact, so many companies and organizations make far too much of their data and information systems easily accessible to that inherently less secure ecosystem – sometimes deliberately after due reflection, but often without sufficient consideration of their vulnerability to the online “threatscape.” And as those threats continue to evolve and multiply, the overall risk to business operations is growing at a rate for which most users are probably woefully unprepared.

For this reason, among others, we at Syniverse believe the companies that want to do business and transfer data with certainty, security and privacy should not be relying on the public internet. Instead, businesses must integrate the use of a private, isolated network as a way to communicate and transact at speed and scale, while still protecting their data and authenticating their processes to a best-in-class level.

I invite you to find out more in part three of our video series below, and in part one.
