The development of technologies and progression of information dynamics requires the businesses to pay more attention to security measures. The cyber threats are constantly changing so the requirements of security systems and methods become different. Development of cloud services, creation of new services and decisions during the businesses attracts the attention of cyber-criminals.

The number of attacks conducted by cyber-criminals is rising. For instance, one can remember the attacks on Verizon, Uber, or well-known WannaCry, which damaged the systems of East-European companies. Cyber-attacks are among the top 5 risks which hit the global businesses. According to The Global State of Information Security Survey, 63% of cyber-sphere professionals believe they can enter in any enterprise’s system.

The speakers of Security TRENDs said the corporate networks and cloud systems, also the devices such as smartphones mostly attract the cyber-criminals. This circumstance requires the development of special protection tools aimed at preventing interference in corporate systems within the most vulnerable areas.

At the end of the conference the discussion was held. The answers were given to the questions such as: to which threats are the enterprises and organizations ready to handle? Which risks does it comprise? Which processes and procedures should be implemented and etc.
