Suggested January 2024 Cybersecurity: Laws Only Go So Far

Many of us have been frustrated when dealing with the legalities of security. Most of the time, after pursuing an issue down to the cause, we find that we have no way to levy consequences against the offending party. It feels even worse when companies who were less than careful while handling and storing your personal data have personally victimized you.

So what’s happening to stop this? Have lawmakers and politicians been stung enough to at least attempt to mitigate the issues we face personally and professionally?

Well the Feds have decided to take a swing at the issue by proposing several bills and the States have followed suit too.

H.R. 1685 “Data Security Act of 2007” would require the federal government and businesses to notify individuals if their sensitive personal or financial information is compromised through a data security breach.

H.R. 836 “Cyber-Security Enhancement and Consumer Data Protection Act of 2007” would require notification of federal law enforcement officials of certain data breaches and provide criminal and civil penalties for knowingly concealing such breaches.

H.R. 958 “Data Accountability and Trust Act” would require companies to implement data security programs and notify individuals affected by a data security breach. It would require businesses to notify individuals if their personal information is compromised in a data breach incident. Additionally, businesses would be required to notify the FTC of the breach.

States have also jumped into the security legislation game with both feet and scored what all of us remember as landmark legislation in California with SB 1386. For those who need a refresher, this law requires all companies in California or that do business in California to disclose any security breaches to each affected Californian customer whose personal information has been compromised. Failure to comply may result in lawsuits and damages.

Once California introduced this law, roughly 36 other states followed with their own state breach notice laws.

And while the Senate has been slow to act on other security concerns such as spyware, we see that 15 states already have laws on the books with 8 states having proposals out this year. There are two federal bills floating now that have passed the House.

H.R. 1525 “I-SPY Act” would impose prison sentences on up to five years and/or fines for intentionally using spyware in furtherance of another federal crime and calls for sentences of not more than two years for intentionally accessing without authorization, or hacking into, a computer.

H.R. 964 “Spy Act” would prohibit the collection of personal information from a computer without notice to and consent from the consumer.

So we can see that our friends in Washington have been busy little bees with the FTC being the main enforcement arm of all these little gems. But with new laws come new issues.

Being that security litigation is still relatively new, you can bet that while legislation is laced with good intentions, we’re going to see quite a bit of a learning curve when it comes to lawyers, judges, rules of civil procedure and all of the many processes used to produce electronic evidence.

What does all of this mean to you?

While it’s nice to see that the wheels of justice are finally starting to spin, they have miles and miles of catching up to do. In addition, the laws on the books here in the United States certainly don’t begin to cover the deluge of international security issues that are now commonplace in all areas of business and government.

One thing is for sure. The bad guys are not going to get any less clever.

All of us are going to have to realize that even with new legislation on the books, we’re going to have to make serious adjustments in our practices and attitudes toward data security. No longer can we focus on our little piece of the pie and dwell on the frustrations within.

We need to understand that the issue of data security is no longer just a technology problem but also a criminal, legal and most of all, a business problem.

Samsung One Ui 2 Problems We Know So Far

It’s been a couple of months since Google’s grand Android 10 unveiling. Apart from Google’s Pixel lineup, a few other companies, such as OnePlus, Xiaomi, Essential Phone, and Nokia have also rolled out the latest version of Android to their smartphones.

Samsung isn’t the fastest when it comes to software updates, but the South Korean OEM, too, is determined to up the ante this time around. As a demonstration of intent, the company has begun beta testing Google’s latest offering a month earlier than last year. Android 10-based One UI 2 beta has gone live for the Galaxy S10 series and Note 10 duo, allowing users to see what Samsung has in store for them this year.

Update, November 28: Samsung has released the stable Android 10 update for the Galaxy S10, S10+, and S10e now. However, as far as Android 10 goes, only a beta software is available for the Galaxy S9, Note 10 and Note 9.

Beta software is how companies know what they need to fix before releasing it widely to the public. Samsung has been quite dependable when it comes to public beta software, meaning the company rarely releases builds that are impossible to use on a daily basis. Samsung’s latest release, One UI 2 beta, fits under the description quite comfortably, as it, too, is more than capable of serving as your daily driver.

However, as clarified earlier, beta software is meant to hash out the imperfections and help the manufacturers make the stable build as perfect as possible. In this piece, we’ll take a look at all the bugs and glitches in One UI 2, and hopefully, help you find a few solutions along the way. So, without further ado, let’s get to it.

Camera Performance

This is a subjective issue, to be honest, but enough evidence has piled up to support S10 and Note 10’s deteriorating camera performance. Users have primarily complained about the selfie camera performance, claiming it’s nowhere near a $1000 flagship’s standard. Samsung, who takes pride in its industry-leading camera tech, has to come out with a solution before the official build starts rolling out.

RAM Management

Feel your One UI 2 device is refreshing apps far too often? You’re, fortunately or unfortunately, not alone. RAM management has taken a substantial hit since the release of Android 10 beta, forcing many apps to refresh even if they are minimized for a short span. This has primarily affected gamers, as they are losing game progress shortly after minimizing the games/apps.

Inconsistent Navigation Gestures

Google has introduced revamped touch-based navigation with Android 10. Samsung, staying true to the source material, has brought the gesture to its One UI 2 ROM, hoping to win over some purists. The gestures are easy to grasp, but they are a bit hit-and-miss. The Home and recent apps gestures, especially, are not the most dependable and can leave a user frustrated.

No Netflix

The most popular streaming service on the planet, Netflix, has become an essential app for most users. Unfortunately, if you’re trying to run the latest version of the app on your One UI 2 beta smartphone, a minor setback is in store. As the One UI 2 is still in beta, the ROM isn’t certified for Netflix. So, currently, there’s no way to run the latest version of the streaming application. You can, however, download an older version of the app or wait for Samsung to roll out the stable Android 10 build.  

Internet Disconnecting

Users have reported unreliable internet connection since opting for the beta. Especially, while connected to a Wi-Fi network, many apps are having a hard time staying connected. Messenger apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger have been asking users to switch to mobile to continue enjoying their services, which, of course, isn’t ideal for people who don’t have an active data plan. Apart from Wi-Fi issues, random internet disconnections have also been reported by a number of users.


Thankfully, there’s an easy fix to this particular problem. Simply toggle on Airplane mode, keep it on for two minutes, and turn it back off again.

Samsung Notes Crash

The Samsung Notes app is arguably one of the most reliable applications on the Galaxy lineup, which is why many of us use it as our primary note-taking application. Sadly, in the process of fixing other more “important bugs,” Samsung has somehow messed up the Notes app. Following the sixth One UI 2 beta update, the app would randomly force close, which is, without a doubt, an annoying issue to encounter. To top it off, you can’t also back up the data to Samsung Cloud.

Google Discover glitch

This is probably one of the most annoying bugs we’ve ever encountered, as it really dampens the flow of browsing through Google’s powerful search engine. Most of us access Google through the search bar widget on our Home screen and get results (websites) as per our search query. One UI 2 beta does this part just fine but has a hard time opening up the webpages.

Upon tapping, the app takes either forever to open the page or won’t open the page at all. If you encounter the latter, try opening Google Chrome manually, and you should see the desired webpage waiting for you.

Whatsapp Share

Another big annoying bug that has plagued users all over the globe is the inability to share anything over WhatsApp. Well, you can still send images/videos/songs through WhatsApp itself by tapping on the attachment icon and selecting the right options, but you can’t share anything from a different app, not even Samsung’s Gallery.

Sharing links has become practically impossible, as no app, so far, has figured out a way to bypass One UI 2’s interference and deliver the links straight to WhatsApp.

Battery Life

It’s best to keep our expectations in check when dealing with beta software, but it’s really difficult to overlook the abysmal battery life One UI 2 beta is offering. The first version of the beta, which went live for the Galaxy S10 devices in Korea, the US, and Germany in the third week of October couldn’t get the devices halfway through the day after a full top-up.

The second version, which is now live for Note 10 duo and S10 devices in all regions, has improved a little on that front, but it’s still not what we expect. Samsung must figure out a way to fix the battery algorithm before the official release and maybe even release a hotfix for beta testers.

Dark Mode

As we all know, Dark Mode has been one of Android 10’s standout features, finally allowing users to dress up their screens and menus in black and reduce eye strain. Samsung introduced Dark Mode last year itself with the launch of One UI. They have extended the Dark Mode to the Home screen as well, diming the wallpaper in an attempt to bring down eye strain a couple more notches.

To be honest, we are quite impressed with Samsung’s implementation of Dark Mode, but it can feel a little confusing if you’re not careful. As per our findings, if a user was already using Dark Mode before updating to One UI 2 beta, there’s no way for them to revert back to normal. The toggle, which is meant to allow users to switch from light to dark, seems to be broken and doesn’t do anything when Dark Mode is turned off.


If you are facing the problem mentioned above, make sure you’re not using Medium Power Saving mode or lower. By switching to optimized or above, you should be able to restore the normal appearance of your phone.

Game Throttling

Many users are having a hard time gaming on their Galaxy S10, claiming that the GPU throttles down considerably after 2/3 minutes of play. The issue seems to be affecting only the Exynos variants of the S10 devices, so Snapdragon users can rest easy. Synthetic benchmark scores are still up to the mark, which almost guarantees this issue to be an optimization glitch.

Let us know if you run into any other bugs than those listed above.

Roundup: Everything We Know So Far About The Iphone Xs Max

Apple is widely expected to release three new iPhone models this year, including a refreshed version of the current iPhone X, as well as a new 6-inch LCD model and a 6.4-inch OLED model.

While we’re still a few months away from Apple’s announcement, there’s quite a bit we already know about the so-called “iPhone X Plus.” Read on as we roundup the latest rumors about the 6.4-inch device…

Design & Size

The iPhone X Plus, as you would expect, is likely to feature the same design as the current iPhone X, just in a larger form factor. This means you’ll have an edge-to-edge display with a notch cutout along the top to house the necessary Face ID components.

In terms of raw dimensions, supply chain schematics suggest the device will be 157.53mm by 77.44 mm by 7.85 mm thick. The easiest comparison for this device is the current iPhone 8 Plus, which measures in at 158.4mm x 78.1mm x 7.5mm thick.

As you can see, this means the iPhone X Plus will likely be slightly shorter and more narrow, but a bit thicker. A hands-on video offered direct comparisons between the two devices, showing how each devices feels in the hand and more.

Elsewhere, we should expect the iPhone X Plus to feature the same glass back and stainless steel bezels as the current iPhone X. A report also suggested that it may come in a new gold color option (as the iPhone X was intended to) and feature dual-SIM capabilities.

Read more:


A crucial part of the size of the iPhone X Plus will be the display. The device is expected to pack at 6.4-inch OLED display with between 480 and 500 pixels-per-inch and a resolution of around 1242 x 2688. This compares to the current iPhone X at 458 PPI and the iPhone 8 Plus at 401 PPI.

The iPhone X Plus will feature an OLED display, much like the 2023 iPhone X. This display will bring darker blacks and improved overall color when compared to the iPhone 8 Plus.

While some earlier reports suggested that the iPhone X Plus would feature a 6.5-inch screen, more recent schematics have pegged the actual useable screen release to be 6.4-inches. Either way, the display on the iPhone X Plus will be notably bigger than the iPhone 8 Plus display, but come in a footprint that’s nearly the same size.

One important thing to note about the iPhone X Plus is that its display will almost certainly be more tall than the iPhone 8 Plus. The iPhone X features a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, while the iPhone 8 Plus features a more common 16:9 aspect ratio. We should expect the iPhone X Plus to closely follow the precedent set by the iPhone X.

Read more:


Apple partner TSMC recently began mass production of a 7-nanometer processor destined for this year’s iPhone lineup. This processor will likely be touted by Apple as the A12, following in the footsteps of the current A11 Bionic.

What’s notable about the A12 is that it is the first Apple processor to be based on the 7-nanometer design, making it more faster, smaller, and more efficient than past 10-nanometer chips.

Elsewhere, the iPhone X will likely pack 4GB of RAM, a step up from the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus, both of which feature 3GB.

While there have been whispers of the 2023 iPhone models switching entirely to USB-C, a more recent report indicated that we’ll likely see Lightning connectivity live on for another year. However, that report also suggested that Apple will include a USB-C to Lightning cable in the box, as well as a USB-C wall adapter.

Read more:


The iPhone X Plus is said to feature the same two-camera setup as the current iPhone X, which means we’ll get one wide-angle lens and one telephoto lens for features such as Portrait Mode. While some originally suggested this would be the year of a triple-lens iPhone, that doesn’t actually appear to be the case.

What’s still unclear, however, is what sort of technology the two-camera setup will feature. The iPhone X touts a 12MP camera, but at this point it’s unknown if the iPhone X Plus will make any improvements upon that.

Read more:


One of the scariest things for many hopeful iPhone X Plus users has been the price. With the 2023 iPhone X starting at $999, many have feared that the iPhone X Plus will come in closer to the $1,500 mark.

Analysts, however, don’t seem to think that’s the case. One analyst suggested that, due to the lack of a true “super cycle” last year, Apple will drop the price of the 5.8-inch model to $899 and start the iPhone X Plus at $999.

What’s important to note here, however, is that pricing for Apple products can be very challenging to predict ahead of time. While hardware updates and configurations can usually be tracked through the supply chain, the same can’t be said for pricing.

According to one report, however, Apple expects the iPhone X Plus to be the most popular model it introduces this year, even beating out the more affordable 6-inch LCD model.

Read more:


As has become normal over the last few years, Apple is widely expected to announce the iPhone X Plus (and the rest of its new iPhones) at an event in September. A release should then follow within a couple of weeks.

Ios 16 Features: Here’s What We Know So Far Ahead Of Wwdc

Now that we’re less than a week away from WWDC, rumors of new iOS 16 features are starting to gain traction. iOS 16 will mark the next major release of Apple’s software platform for the iPhone, as well as iPadOS 16 for the iPad. Head below as we recap all of the latest rumors and expectations for iOS 16 this year, including new features, release info, and more.

When will iOS 16 be announced?

As precedent indicates, iOS 16 will be announced at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. This year, WWDC will take place as a (mostly) virtual event running from June 6 through June 10. Apple will hold a keynote address on June 6 to kick off the event, and it’s during this keynote that we expect to receive our first look at iOS 16 and iPadOS 16.

Following iOS 16 being announced during this WWDC keynote, Apple will release the first betas to developers. Usually, developer betas are released within a few hours of the keynote ending. Apple will subsequently release a public beta that all iPhone and iPad users can access, usually sometime in July.

iOS 16 supported devices

One of the biggest questions people have every year is whether or not Apple will drop support for any older iPhone and iPad models. With last year’s release of iOS 15, Apple maintained compatibility with all of the devices that were supported by iOS 14.

This year, an early rumor indicates that iOS 16 could drop support for the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, and the original iPhone SE. As for now, this is just a rumor and it’s unclear whether it pans out, but the source of this rumor did correctly report supported devices for iOS 13 and iOS 14.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone SE supposedly being dropped were first released in late 2023 and early 2023 respectively, meaning they will have received more than six years of regular software updates.

No redesign in iOS 16

While some users were hoping that iOS 16 would mark the first major redesign in years, that doesn’t appear like it will come to fruition. Bloomberg has reported that iOS 16 will not offer an “end to end redesign,” meaning that the overarching design will remain the same again this year.

The last time Apple truly overhauled the entirety of iOS was with iOS 7, a redesign that was not without criticism and was scaled back massively during the beta testing process. Since then, Apple has made gradual changes to individual applications and aspects of iOS, but we haven’t seen a complete overhaul in one swoop since iOS 7.

iOS 16 features

Bloomberg has said that iOS 16 will be a “fairly significant” update across the board, despite the lack of a redesign. One of the focuses this year will apparently be on notifications.

The rumored focus on notifications is interesting because Apple has made numerous changes to the iOS notifications system over the last two years, with the introduction of features like Notification Summary and Focus Modes. It seems, however, that Apple still isn’t happy with the implementation of notifications throughout iOS, and is planning more changes for this year.

Additionally, Bloomberg has reported that iOS 16 will will include new health-tracking features as well. Apple has made the Health app and its integration with Apple Watch a focal point of software updates in recent years, and it looks like that won’t change this year.

Presumably, new health-oriented features in iOS 16 will also tie into new health features in watchOS 9. Bloomberg has said that watchOS 9 will also include “major upgrades to activity and health tracking” this year.

iOS 16 could also include new features aimed at the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max launching later this year. According to Mark Gurman, iOS 16 “builds in future support for an always-on lock screen.” Apple was reportedly planning to add an always-on display to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro, but scrapped the feature.

The always-on display would reportedly allow users to see pieces of information on their iPhone display at all-times. These “widgets” would be designed to focus on glanceable notifications, including things like messages and weather details.

Reports also indicate that iOS 16 will bring more “social-network like functionality” to the Messages app, with a particular focus on new audio messaging features.

Finally, for iPadOS, the sole rumor so far is that Apple is planning a new multitasking interface. Changes to the WebKit infrastructure suggest that iPadOS 16 could add a new “multitasking mode” that could bring freely resizable windows to the iPad for the first time.

9to5Mac’s Take

Apple will officially unveil all of its iOS 16 features in just a few days at WWDC 2023. In the meantime, however, it looks like iOS 16 will be a relatively modest upgrade, with Apple focusing on quality-of-life improvements rather than major visual changes.

Personally, I hope to see Apple revamp notifications in a way that makes it much clearer and easier to see your latest notifications without awkward grouping. I’m also hoping for some updates to home screen widgets, particularly in regards to interactivity, and major updates to the Home app and HomeKit in general.

Why The Ebola Epidemic Is (So Far) Less Devastating Than Scientists Predicted

Aid Workers In Sierra Leone

Photo was taken on August 2, 2014.

The havoc that Ebola is wreaking in West Africa cannot be understated. With a total of 21,200 people infected since March 2014, the disease is shredding the social fabric of Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, leaving 8,400 dead. People live in fear, afraid to shake others’ hands. Survivors are shunned, and those suspected of carrying the disease are being physically assaulted in some regions. Schools are closed, and economies have been ravaged.

Yet the situation could have been much worse. Last fall, many scientists predicted that the epidemic would be raging out of control by now. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that, in the worst case scenario, a total of 1.4 million West Africans would be infected by mid-January. Other models from other teams predicted hundreds of thousands of Ebola cases by now too.

So far, these doomsday prophecies aren’t coming to fruition. The latest report from WHO suggests that the rate of new cases is slowing down, and although the deadliest Ebola epidemic in history is far from finished, the worst of it may be behind us. That’s great news! But why were the models so far off?

Ebola Cases

In Sierra Leone (left) and Liberia (right), the number of new Ebola cases is decreasing.

Timing Is Everything

The CDC study, published in September, only included data up until the end of August. At that time, the epidemic was growing quickly, and very few governments and aid organizations seemed to be stepping up to help. Then there was a huge surge in aid starting in September, and the situation started to turn around quickly. Epidemiologists couldn’t have predicted which organizations would help, how much aid they would give, how that aid would be allocated, and what impact each measure would have on curbing the epidemic.

“The key part to remember is that we make projections based on the assumption that no further interventions and no further changes in human behavior will take place,” says Martin Meltzer, who led the CDC study. “We knew, or we very much hoped that we would be wrong.”

Scientists’ predictions of calamity weren’t unreasonable, says Colin Brown, who studies infectious diseases at King’s College London and works closely with hospitals in Sierra Leone. “The models showed what could happen if there was a lack of international effort. We really don’t know what would have happened if the world hadn’t stepped up.”

Unreported Cases

A model by the World Health Organization (WHO) seems to be more accurate than the CDC’s, predicting Ebola cases would exceed 20,000 by the beginning of November. The real numbers were closer to 13,000 by then, and the model didn’t predict any numbers beyond that month.

The main difference between the CDC and WHO models lies in the estimation of how many Ebola cases weren’t included in the data. Epidemiologists know that not everyone who gets sick reports it to the proper authorities, but the WHO model didn’t attempt to estimate how many. The CDC model, by comparison, assumed that for every reported case, 1.5 other cases were not recorded. That assumption likely contributed to some of the overestimation.

Humans Are Complicated

Similarly, Brown says, communities in Sierra Leone gradually began to accept that burials had to be done differently. They began going to clinics earlier for treatment and isolating themselves when they feared they’d contracted Ebola.

“Sierra Leone used to be an incredibly tactile, physically warm culture. Now it’s almost an insult for someone to hold their hand out to shake it.”

“Sierra Leone used to be an incredibly tactile, physically warm culture,” says Brown. “Now it’s almost an insult for someone to hold their hand out to shake it. People have been quite quick to learn that this is a disease spread by close contact and bodily secretions…. The sad thing is you hope that things can go back to normal soon.”

It’s Not Over Yet

While the number of new cases is slowing down, West Africa is not out of the woods yet.

“Definitely things are getting better,” says Meltzer. “However we have to be on guard, not lulled into complacency… There are still places within West Africa where Ebola is a very big threat, and it will spread out again if we let down our guard.”

That’s what happened last spring, when an apparent lull in Ebola cases suggested the epidemic was winding down. Weeks later, the virus reared back worse than ever. Some experts think the “lull” was just a result of people not reporting their illness as panic grew. Others suggest that health authorities let down their guard. In any case, it’s clear that public health authorities will have to remain vigilant in tracking down cases.

Meltzer says the epidemic can be quelled if health authorities continue to do what they’re doing now. “There’s no magic pill. We have to spend more time and effort tracing contacts, making sure they go to Ebola Treatment Units or situations with reduced risk, and continue the message of safe burials.”

Once the epidemic has been quelled, Brown predicts that West Africa will continue to see lots of smaller, localized outbreaks for many months to come, because of the interconnectedness between cultures. These will likely pop up in places that haven’t seen a case in weeks or months, as people revert back to traditional burial customs. To stop these situations from growing worse, Brown says health authorities need to be quick. “We’re going to have to have rapid-response SWAT teams that are ready to dive into the population to trace contacts and get people into care very quickly,” says Brown.

Other challenges will continue to plague doctors and nurses long after this particular epidemic ends. Animals, including bats, carry Ebola and sometimes reintroduce the disease back into human populations in Africa. “When people show up with a fever, how do you know it’s not malaria?” Brown asks. “What early warning mechanisms are going to be in place to get it under control?”

Contextual Analytics, Cybersecurity Mesh, And Zero

Check out ManageEngine’s top five predictions in the IT management space for 2023

“Following the pandemic, hybrid work will be an expectation if not the norm at most organizations across the world. That means cybersecurity, AI, automation, and analytics will play increasingly significant roles in organizational efforts to support this way of working,” said

Rajesh Ganesan, Vice President of products at ManageEngine


Here are ManageEngine’s top five predictions in the IT management space for 2023. 

1. Organizational insights will become immediately actionable with the rise of contextual analytic

When insights are presented directly within a business application, the chances of an organization acting upon them are much higher than when those same insights are presented in standalone business intelligence software. For example, when insights on project efficiency are available within project management software, it’s easier for project managers to relate the findings to their daily work and implement measures to fix inefficiencies. 

The way we train and deploy AI models is expected to change significantly in the coming year. With more sustainable techniques like meta learning, transfer learning, and causal AI expected to complement deep learning, AI and ML will eventually become full-fledged, embedded elements of contextual analytics workflows. 

2. The cybersecurity mesh model will offer better protection in the hybrid workforce era 

As employees continue to access organizational resources from different locations, traditional network-based security is becoming obsolete. The security landscape has evolved in part due to the accelerated shift to the cloud and usage of unvetted personal devices, resulting in many organizations becoming highly susceptible to cyberthreats and insider attacks.

In this scenario, a cybersecurity mesh model, with its central principle of Zero Trust, will gain more traction. The cybersecurity mesh model is a distributed approach in which smaller, individual security perimeters are built around people or objects acting as access points, thereby offering IT teams better security control.

3. IT operating models will continue to evolve to support the hybrid workforce

Organizations had to stumble their way through implementing their business continuity plans in response to the first lockdown. But with

employees preferring hybrid work long term

, further changes will have to be made in operating models to ensure hybrid work is streamlined and sustainable.

Despite self-service portals, the productivity of remote employees is still disrupted when an incident occurs. In the era of hybrid work, aspects like zero-touch service management that can handle machine-solvable incidents, digital experience monitoring to ensure high availability and constant improvements to end users, and increased adoption of desktop as a service and VDIs will be more important than ever.    

4. AIOps and IT automation will be critical building blocks of enterprise technology architectures 5. The cybersecurity skill crunch might force organizations to turn to service providers

There is likely to be an imbalance in the supply and demand of skilled employees in the cybersecurity space. To address their evolving needs, organizations will increasingly use the services of MSSPs and managed detection and response providers. For instance, the increase in remote employees, cloud adoption, and the need to meet compliance regulations make IAM a tedious process for most organizations. Since many organizations lack the necessary skills and resources to implement an IAM solution, more organizations will turn to Identity as a Service providers to fill this role.
