Addressing Human Risk in Email-Based Cyber Threats: A Review of BeamSec – Security Review Magazine


Key Insights from Murat Guvenc on AI in Cybersecurity and GISEC 2024 Participation

In the fast-evolving world of cybersecurity, Murat Guvenc, the Director of Global Business Development and Channels at BeamSec, emphasizes the crucial role of AI in proactive threat detection. As we look ahead to 2024, cybersecurity trends are shaping up to be more challenging and complex than ever before.

One of the key trends for 2024 is the increasing prevalence of Cybercrime-as-a-Service, leading to a rise in sophisticated ransomware attacks. This highlights the importance of organizations implementing comprehensive security strategies to protect against such threats. Additionally, supply chain and third-party vulnerabilities are becoming more prominent, necessitating a holistic approach to cybersecurity.

Moreover, the regulatory landscape is evolving rapidly, with new cybersecurity legislation such as the Cyber Trust Mark and the Cyber Resilience Act impacting various sectors. Organizations are now required to conduct thorough audits and implement continuous monitoring systems to ensure compliance and enhance their security postures.

At GISEC 2024, BeamSec’s participation will focus on addressing the human risk in email-based cyber threats. They will showcase user-centric solutions designed to mitigate the risks posed by phishing, spear-phishing, and other social engineering attacks that exploit human vulnerabilities. By emphasizing the importance of technology and fostering a culture of cybersecurity awareness, BeamSec aims to make a significant impact on improving email security protocols and reducing human-error-related breaches.

In the face of a skills gap in the cybersecurity industry, Guvenc suggests a multi-faceted approach to bridge this divide. This includes updating educational curricula, investing in continuous professional development and training, fostering diversity in the industry, and establishing public-private partnerships for cybersecurity certifications aligned with industry needs. By taking these steps, the workforce can be better equipped to protect against and respond to cybersecurity challenges in the future.
