Data Security: Trends in 2021

By Dick Weisinger

Working from home. Ransomeware. Frequent breaches. IT security teams are feeling stress as they try to keep data secure.

Yassir Abousselham, CIO of Splunk, told Forbes that “we have to deliver the same level of security protection to employees and contingent workforce regardless of location: office, home, a coffee shop hotspot.”

Rob Lemos, writer at TechBeacon, collected some of the data security trends that we can expect throughout 2021:

  • Increased Privacy Regulation – California has the new Consumer Privacy Act, and Europe has the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). More than half the states in the US are considering bills to increase data security.
  • Reduction in Storage of Personal Data – The penalties and problems that could result from keeping personal data from customers are beginning to outweigh the potential benefits.
  • Data Privacy is now a Priority Issue for Executives – More CEOs and other executives realize the importance of complying with data regulations.
  • Disinformation – It has become increasingly easy with social networks and other internet tools to spread information that isn’t correct. Businesses need to have guidelines for how to share information and how to correct information that isn’t correct.
