It’s been a tough year for those battling cybersecurity threats and data breaches. From Target and Home Depot to JP Morgan Chase and Sony Pictures Entertainment, 2014 reminded business executives and consumers that nobody is invincible when it comes to cybercrimes. So, as 2015 approaches, one thing is certain: cybercriminals are becoming more elite, and a defensive approach is going to lose every time.
According to technology expert Karl Volkman, Chief Technology Officer at SRV Network Inc., the ever-evolving technology landscape will only give hackers more opportunities to infiltrate the networks that house business and consumer data. “When you think about the advancements we’ve seen in 2014 alone, you begin to understand how fast our capabilities are expanding,” says Volkman. “The key to protecting data is to understand the challenges of tomorrow, and to be proactive about addressing them.”
