Another approach that should gain ground is Zero Trust as a starting point for security . This model assumes that all users and devices are , or could be , potentially malicious .
Companies are more aware of the risks associated with data and should add new layers of protection to traditional security technologies such as next-generation firewalls , VPNs , MFA and others . New generations of these products and services need to be dynamic and updated according to local customer demands .
In this environment , the culture of organizational resilience will be fundamental . After all , it is not enough to invest in IT solutions and infrastructure to protect the company from cyberattacks if employees do not align
with a series of good practices .

Companies are looking for innovative solutions to protect their data and ensure their operations continue to run successfully . Therefore , it will be up to CIOs to develop their business vision in addition to the technical aspects of security . p
So instead of relying on history and profiles to keep attackers out , digital security forces filter everything and everyone – which will require new types of identity-based , passwordless access controls to ensure that only authorized users have access to sensitive information .
