A thought-provoking article authored by Electrosoft CEO Dr. Sarbari Gupta published as an online Security magazine exclusive on May 27th. “Protecting the User as a High-Value Asset to Achieve a Safer Cyber World!” proposes a novel shift in the cybersecurity paradigm from a sole focus on the protected object to one that encompasses the defense of end-users. A simple premise underlies her proposal: Users are not only the subjects of online transactions, but also the objects of transactions initiated by other parties. Dr. Gupta writes, “My call to action is straightforward: We need a new mindset within the cybersecurity community that recognizes the user as a high-value asset in need of multi-layered protection. To promote User-Centric Zero-Trust solution architectures, we need more focused research and development to strengthen existing technologies and identify new ones that offer robust protection across all channels.”
