Welcome to the new issue of Eviden Digital Security Magazine, where we embark on a journey into the heart of cybersecurity innovation. In today’s hyper-connected world, the cycle of digital innovation, including cybersecurity, is accelerating. In just the first half of this year alone, more than 400 financial transactions were recorded, helping cybersecurity startups scale and bring remarkable breakthroughs to the market. Additionally, since 2019, cybersecurity startups have raised more than $76 billion in funding across 4,000 funding deals, a true testament to the impressive pace of innovation in our industry.
Both startups and established cybersecurity players have been challenging the conventional way of doing cybersecurity and driving major technological advancements, especially to address the new cybersecurity risks posed by emerging technologies.
In this issue, we explore some of the most exciting and impactful developments that have emerged from this era of rapid innovation. We delve into the new and unique cybersecurity challenges brought forward by the metaverse and GenAI, demonstrating how to embrace such technological innovation with a security-by-design approach.
We also highlight new innovations such as self-sovereign identity, which grants individuals greater control over their digital identities, enhancing security and privacy in an age of data breaches and identity theft. Additionally, we explore the readiness for post-quantum cryptography, an area that organizations must begin preparing for today.
Our experts will also discuss the ever-changing regulatory framework that fosters innovation by setting standards driving cybersecurity advancements.
