Tech News Hub: WEEKLY NEWS INSIGHTS
Welcome to our weekly news roundup where we highlight our week's top stories. It’s cybersecurity awareness month and, therefore, our top three stories of the week touched on the topic.
To begin with, we did a piece on the 5 hottest trends in cybersecurity where we highlighted the major threats businesses are facing right now. Ransomware, deepfakes, and crypto-jacking all made it to our top three.
Next, we looked at why businesses are still slow to adopt Zero Trust technology even with the security benefits it offers. Turns out that legacy systems are the biggest hindrance to zero trust adoption. But they don’t have to be.
Then to finish off, we shed some light on the new attack methodology being used by hackers. Ransomware as we know it has evolved and organisations need to make changes to their security strategies to combat this new threat.
In our other top story, we talked about the increased adoption of hybrid cloud and the challenges it brings. Thanks to the pandemic we have witnessed unprecedented levels of digital migration but this has been followed by organisations reverting back to old systems due to a lack of preparedness. What’s the way out?
On the same note, the increased migration to the cloud has led to increased demand for Data protection as a service (Dpas) since many businesses lack the right internal skills. This comes as a massive opportunity for MSPs but they will need to step up if they are to effectively capitalise on the opportunity.
In other news, the US army has begun using augmented reality to strengthen its military strength. The army received the first batch of proposed 120,000 augmented reality goggles meant to help soldiers become more effective in close combat. The goggles work by projecting critical information in a soldier’s field of view, including maps, enemy positions, and key friendly positions.
And in our final story, Huawei has lost a huge revenue source after the UK government issued a directive for a telecos in the country to remove Huawei technology from the country’s 5G network by the end of 2027. Huawei believes the order is politically motivated.
