I recently read a note from Forbes that mentions how Mexican companies and organizations have suffered 80,000 million cyberattack attempts so far this year.

Technology is becoming a determining factor in preventing attacks and managing cybersecurity risks.

How to design a security strategy

According to Gartner's cybersecurity trends, in order to address risks, it is necessary for the Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) to carry out a transition in their functions and not act so much as technologists who prevent attacks, but rather as corporate strategists managing cybersecurity risks.

Among the cybersecurity trends are:

Cybersecurity Mesh: It is a modern conceptual approach to security architecture that allows hybrid-remote companies to deploy and integrate security into assets, whether on premises, in data centers or in the cloud.

Gartner predicts that by 2024, organizations that adopt a cybersecurity mesh architecture will reduce the financial impact of individual security incidents by an average of 90%.

To understand the complexity of the issue, it is important to first mention the changes that software development is undergoing. Today in the technological community the phrase "fail fast, fail often" is constantly repeated. Accepting failure, learning from it, and starting over is a powerful and practical way to deliver value faster.

Microservices architecture is a great facilitator of this strategy, architecture has gone beyond the technological perspective and has become a culture that companies have adopted- although, in this strategy, the issue of security becomes more important and less predictable.

It is important to note that the OWASP Top 10 Threats have been around for a long time with minimal (few) changes over the past decade. This fact means that the same mistakes are being made over and over again, allowing attackers to exploit the same vulnerabilities.
