This is the final installment of a two-part series dissecting the Left of Bang strategy and mindset and how it applies to modern cybersecurity practices. Click here to read part one. Left of bang is a proactive cybersecurity approach that strengthens incident detection and response by identifying and addressing threats before they impact the organization.
The 2023 MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK® Evaluation results were recently released, and out of 29 participating cybersecurity vendors, only one delivered 100% protection and 100% analytic coverage with zero configuration changes and zero delayed detections.
As the 2024 New Year has arrived, so does the opportunity to make educated predictions for what the future holds for cybersecurity. Fundamentally, a cybersecurity strategy is an integral component of business strategy because it allows the business to harness risk. Since cybersecurity is often driven by compliance mandates and overly restrictive policies, cybersecurity teams are sometimes seen as the “department of no.” However, that need not always be the case.
To stay updated in the evolving IT environment, organizations are consistently navigating multi-cloud transitions and embracing hybrid work models. The increasing dispersion of users and applications across platforms heightens the difficulty of ensuring a functioning, resilient, and consistent user experience.
In 2023, the era of using data to transform how businesses operate continued to gain steam. To keep up with shifting business demands and ensure data remains safe, security and IT teams need to expand the capabilities within their support teams and the widening IT environments they cater to. The challenge is even more significant with the rise of modern hybrid cloud setups, which trigger unexpected complexity and unknown security vulnerabilities.
There used to be a single test to determine the effectiveness of your data backup strategy. It centered around successfully restoring your data from a backup, and you would rest easy knowing that you would, in theory, recover from a data loss event. It was really that simple.

As companies adopt multi- or hybrid cloud strategies at a rapid pace to accelerate digital initiatives, the advantages of this technology are not without its challenges. In this blog post, we explore the current state of digital acceleration and cloud security, and how businesses can find an integrated cloud solution that works best for their existing ecosystems.
The push for data transformation is compelling companies to modernize network operations and digital infrastructure. However, such transformational efforts demand specialized expertise. To modernize legacy networks, it's not just proficiency in the latest technologies that's essential, but also a deep understanding of the legacy systems targeted for upgrade. Achieving digital transformation goals can be significantly hindered without the appropriate talent. However, even more crucial is ensuring that individuals with the necessary skills are in place to secure those digital environments. The repercussions of inadequate security measures and limited personnel can greatly surpass the costs associated with delaying infrastructure upgrades.
The hybrid cloud model is continuing its momentum as a preferred operating model for businesses, but its complexities demand constant adaptation to stay ahead of cyber threats. This applies to both on-premises and hybrid environments. Hybrid cloud allows organizations to leverage diverse IT systems, effectively addressing challenges like security, redundancy, and compliance. However, navigating the delicate balance between security and accepted risk is a moving target for organizations.
