How Digital Transformation Increases Security Challenges

Fortinet’s 2018 Security Implications of Digital Transformation Survey looks at the state of cybersecurity in organizations around the world from a lens of digital transformation and the implications going forward.

While digital transformation is having a significant impact on technology—from data-driven decision-making to cloud adoption, mobility, and the explosion in Internet-of-Things (IoT)—it goes beyond just deploying new solutions. Organizations must also re-examine established business models and processes to drive innovation and better business outcomes. It’s the combined application of digital technologies and data processes to re-imagine the business for new growth that is key.

This is no easy task. Effective transformation requires a collaborative effort across departments involving partners, customers, and other stakeholders. Digital transformation imperatives increase the workload of already strained IT teams struggling to keep pace with business needs, security challenges, and compliance requirements. The integration of business systems, information technology, and operational technology that enables data-driven decision-making also poses new security challenges because these newly connected systems can also accelerate the speed and damage of attacks across enterprise networks. Going forward, security must be integral, holistic, and automated from the outset rather than pieced together over time.
