The challenges that CISOs are facing

Extended network perimeter

In its 2019 article Forbes noted that “Remote work is no longer a ‘perk,’ ‘lifestyle’ or ‘policy’. Remote work, telecommuting and workplace flexibility have officially become a global industry.” The work has moved outside the office, making perimeter-based security architecture obsolete. Today, CISOs need an innovative approach to enforce policy and control access to corporate assets — anywhere and everywhere.

Low visibility into remote networks

With the rise of new sophisticated cyber attack mechanisms, CISOs might feel blindfolded when it comes to monitoring user access and activity outside the corporate firewall. Being able to see analyze everything that is happening at the edge of the network is essential to ensuring a bulletproof security system for the new normal.

Exposure to lateral movement threats

You probably already know that 82% of ransomware attacks utilized lateral movement techniques. All it takes for an attacker to breach the network of your organization is compromising a single IoT device on the network of your remote user. From there, the threat actor can move laterally within network environments from host to host, using tools to avoid detection and disguise malicious traffic as legitimate.

The pandemic has led to a 600% increase in attacks against large and small hotels, restaurants, and other companies, forcing businesses to prioritize cyber risk management. This is especially true now that business trips are resuming and work from anywhere policies are being adopted by companies worldwide. Guests are increasingly concerned about the security of the Wi-Fi they use to connect to corporate assets while working remotely.

The hospitality industry is an enticing target for criminals mainly due to their databases, which store gigabytes of sensitive customer data, including Payment Card Information (PCI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Hackers view this as a lucrative assault vector for crimes such as identity theft and credit card fraud. Besides, the spike in lateral movement attacks has shown that hackers are turning unprotected networks into gateways for targeted attacks on businesses.

With regards to share of incidents, hospitality ranked third, with 13% of cybersecurity breaches taking place within this industry.
