GRC Trends for 2022: Where to Focus Your Efforts

The pandemic has forced business leaders to rethink their operational resilience—especially after a significant surge in the number of data breaches. Adjusting governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) systems will undoubtedly help organizations bounce back and transform potential problems into opportunities. Additionally, keeping an eye on the latest development in the GRC sector will help in strengthening cybersecurity strategy. In this article at IT Security Wire, Vishal Muktewar explains the trends that will shape legal GRC in 2022.

Trends to Look Out for

AI to Reveal Contextual Insights

Artificial intelligence (AI) is now starting to find its role in cybersecurity. AI helps filter out false data and replaces time-consuming manual tasks. It is finding a solid foothold in the world of digital forensics too. Experts believe that AI will be organizations’ investigative partners. It can help guide the investigation by revealing contextual insights across data at the earliest possible stage. Furthermore, it will also uncover immediate insights while reducing the IT team’s efforts to solve a cybersecurity breach. AI will also cut down the extraneous data while enabling organizations to spend their valuable time on the investigation itself.

Tracking Data Breaches Will Become ‘Smarter’

Data breaches are challenging to stop. Their severity has significantly evolved. Simon Whitburn, General Manager and Vice President of International Business, Exterro, explains, “Smart review processes will enable teams to quickly locate Personally Identifiable Information (PII) within compromised data.” According to industry experts, smart analysis ensures more targeted investigations that provide IT teams with relevant data to understand and respond to even the most prominent breaches.

Cloud Forensics—A Framework for Investigating Attacks

With the rapid growth of cloud adoption in both the private and public sectors, cloud computing has become a prospective battlefield for cyberattackers. According to a ‘The Future of the Public Sector’ survey, data collection is the biggest challenge in cloud-based investigations, followed by cooperation from cloud providers (65%), data preservation (49%), and identification (40%). As data collection on cloud platforms continues to grow, digital forensic investigators are expected to diligently collect, analyze, find patterns, and categorize data to solve cybercrimes. Forensic technologists must also have the ability to collaborate in real-time in the cloud.
