Heimdal™ and the “New Normal” of Cybersecurity: An Exclusive Interview with CyberNews
CEO Morten Kjærsgaard Discussed Online Security in the Pandemic Context and 2022 Expectations.
Copenhagen, February 15, 2022 – To address the challenges of the pandemic in cybersecurity and provide a better understanding of what constitutes proper online security, Heimdal™ CEO Morten Kjærsgaard had a talk with CyberNews, a leading research-based online publication that educates and protects consumers around the world from complex security risks.
For more insight on what do cybercriminals usually look for when choosing their next target, the challenges of insider threat, security issues that often remain overlooked, and what is next for Heimdal in 2022, make sure you read the full interview.
Our lives have significantly changed over the last two years, shifting our daily routine almost entirely to the digital realm. Consequently, it posed more cybersecurity challenges and introduced additional opportunities for threat actors. As a result, the attention to high-quality malware prevention has risen along with the introduction of additional cybersecurity services. Yet, is it enough to get one or two security tools to combat malicious hackers? And how many would be enough?
Cybersecurity has become an ever-present issue in business boardrooms as threat actors have become more sophisticated, better equipped, and bolder in their acts. Board members and C-suite executives have also become more aware of the hazard as the number of successful breaches has climbed in recent years. However, the emergence of COVID-19 has shifted the paradigm even further for many organizations.
As Morten describes it,
As a leading European provider of cloud-based cybersecurity solutions, Heimdal devotes a significant amount of time and resources to threat hunting. Unsafe Wi-Fi networks, utilizing personal devices for work, unencrypted file sharing, email scams, neglecting fundamental security procedures in public areas, and, most critically, ransomware and DDoS attacks are the most typical remote work-related security concerns. All of this necessitates significant cybersecurity updates: any organization that wishes to avoid losing money, time, or reputation must deploy and use threat prevention, email security, a strong firewall and antivirus, invest in cybersecurity awareness, and have a proper incident response strategy in place.
While cost-cutting measures may be necessary for many areas, smart businesses may decide to boost their IT spending in the months and years ahead. Companies should consider increasing their efforts in cyber security, better-integrated communications, automation, and improved IT administration.
Although the market does not lack options when it comes to cybersecurity products, the ability to provide customers with all the protection they need and real-time visibility into all areas of a company’s cybersecurity with only one solution, which can be administered from a single, easy dashboard, will make the difference and tip the scales.
