This year, CISOs and security teams are under more pressure than ever to protect the business from threats at every angle. In 2021, another shift in security will inevitably arise – the next wave of cryptography disruption.
Everything considered secure today will be insecure in the future. Algorithms will evolve, vulnerabilities will be uncovered, and attackers will find new ways to abuse the cryptography we rely on.
By 2021, organizations with crypto-agility plans will suffer 60% fewer cryptographically-related security breaches and application failures than organizations without a plan.1
