How Will Cybersecurity Be Automated in 2021?

How Will Cybersecurity Be Automated in 2021?

One of the biggest trends that is anticipated to affect cybersecurity this year is automation. When it comes to solutions for better network management and automation, it will be imperative for organizations and government entities to follow these trends. Otherwise, they’re left vulnerable to a staggering increase in cybersecurity attacks and incidents.

There was reportedly a webinar for U.S. federal agents in August of 2020. The webinar was for agents who are experts in cybersecurity and from cybersecurity directors from organizations like NASA.

The takeaway was that we’re moving away from the notion that you can account for each alert. Instead, there needs to be a significant reliance on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and automation in general.

Based on information from an IBM report, organizations that have invested in automation have average data breaches of around $2.45 million compared to $6 million for the organizations that haven’t made a similar investment.

The following are some of the key things to know about the automation of cybersecurity in 2021 and what trends are likely to be most relevant.

What is Cybersecurity Automation?

Cybersecurity automation broadly refers to products meant to automate specific tasks that fall within the parameters of security. Most organizations probably already have some level of automation as part of their cybersecurity arsenal.

An example of common automation in cybersecurity is the use of products that manage vulnerabilities.

Beyond the simplest and most prevalent types of automation, there are more specific types of security automation.

For example, there is security automation and orchestration or SOAR. There’s also custom software and code used to automate analysis and processes.

As organizations are emphasizing their digital transformation priorities, the complexities of their IT environments are increasing. That ups the risk of cybersecurity threats, alongside with the fact that it’s difficult to source security talent.

Why Automation?

Automation in cybersecurity isn’t just something for large enterprises. It can and should be used by small organizations too.

When you automate cybersecurity, then your team can focus on the more complex challenges.

This is especially important right now. The COVID-19 pandemic shifted work to a remote environment at a rapid pace, meaning many companies were left facing extensive threats and vulnerabilities. Being able to target their focus is helping businesses and their security professionals tackle the most pressing issues, while automation handles the rest.

Data Correlation

One way that automation is becoming more relevant in cybersecurity is for the correlation of data. Most vendors of security solutions gather large amounts of data related to threats. Unfortunately, that data isn’t often put to good use.

For data to be useful, it needs to be turned into action.

When data is not just gathered but appropriately analyzed and used,  it becomes easier to predict what an attacker might do next. You’re several steps ahead rather than behind.

Plus, just like automation is improving cybersecurity, it’s also making it easier for attackers. They are able to have more large-scale attacks that are similarly automated, so you need to be able to fight fire with fire in these instances.

Rapid Protection

Another key area of focus in cybersecurity automation will be making sure that after a threat is identified, then protections can be put into place faster than the attack can move throughout a network. Again, this wouldn’t be possible without the help of automation.

Automation can help preserve resources while simultaneously keeping up with an attack before it leads to downtime.

Automated

Robotic Process Automation

Robotic process automation is a phrase you’re likely to hear quite a bit in the coming years.

Robotic process automation means the use of robots, which can include virtual software bots, to automate repetitive security tasks. What this would mean is that a robot would handle tasks like scanning and monitoring, as well as basic threat detection.

Then, cybersecurity as a whole in an organization becomes more efficient. It removes the need for the human security team to have to manually do these repetitive tasks.

It also cuts out human error, which remains one of the biggest cybersecurity threats any organization faces.

Robotic process automation can help improve response time and alert notifications and can help identify attack surfaces. It can also help with automated patching and updates, and it fills the talent shortage that is inevitably going to be felt in a big way this year as far as security experts.

If you haven’t already done so, now is the time to start planning for the automation of all aspects of network management as well as your cybersecurity.

How to use your Android smartphone as a webcam for your PC

So if you are interested to turn your Android smartphone into a webcam for your Windows PC, follow the steps below on how to do so. Before going through the steps below, make sure first that your phone and Windows PC are connected at the same WIFI network.

Step 1: Download DroidCam Wireless Webcam on your smartphone

You must first download and install DroidCam Wireless Webcam on Android (you should have Android 5.0 or above). Just search the Play Store or click this link: DroidCam Wireless Webcam. On the Play Store page, click Install. Once the application is installed, switch to the Windows computer for the next step.

Step 2: Download DroidCam Client to Windows

On your Windows computer, open your favorite browser and visit this website: DroidCam Windows Client (You may download also on Linux, but not on macOS). Once opened you should see a large DroidCam Client v6.0 button. Click to download.

You will download a 1,525KB file in .exe format. A double-click will open a window with instructions for installing DroidCam Client on Windows. It’s simple and all you have to do with this guide is click Next. When the installation is complete, open the software in Windows.

Step 3: Connect DroidCam Wireless Android Webcam with Windows DroidCam Client

  • Go to your Android smartphone and open the DroidCam Wireless Webcam app.
  • Click the “Next” button at the bottom of the screen.

The application will ask you for permission to use the camera and the application microphone. Normally you need them and you need to approve them. Now the app will open a new screen that shows the Wi-Fi network where you are connected and the IP address of the smartphone and the application gateway.

  • In this case, the IP is 192.168.50.4 and the gateway is 4747.
  • Go to the Windows computer and open the program.
  • In the IP Device set the smartphone IP which in our case is 192.168.50.4 and gate 4747.
  • Make sure you have checked the video option below and press Start.
  • And with that, your smartphone will behave like a webcam you can use in your Skype or Zoom calls.

Note: To choose between the front or the back camera, you must go to the Droidcam app then click the three-dot icon, then Settings > Camera and select it. We advise using the rear camera for better video quality.

If you followed the steps carefully, then start the video conference and choose Droidcam as your camera. The DroidCam client is only available for Windows and Linux and you cannot use it on macOS.

How to block YouTube ads quite simply

A Redditor under sub/ in / r /webdev has posted a very simple trick to block YT ads

And who would have thought that a simple website where you could upload videos would one day turn into a source of income and even a career for some others? YouTube and its monetization process can sometimes become annoying from multiple ads, both as a pop-up and even worse when they interrupt the video in the middle just like on TV.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

A Redditor under sub / in / r/webdev has posted a very simple trick to block YT ads. This trick does not require you to be a master in coding or web development. Just add a “.” in the video URL its enough. Once you have opened the video, in the box above the page where the video address is written, after “.com” add a “.” and most or all of the ads will be blocked.

  • So instead of: “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=”
  • Add: “https://www.youtube.com./watch?v=”

These changes to the URL can be made through the computer, for the smartphone, you will need to open the video in a browser, not from the application. The point is that there is no combination with the host and as a result, the video is transmitted but other contents such as ads fail to connect. And not only blocks ads, but also other things like cookies.

But before you go and watch videos without ads, remember that many of your favorite creators work and benefit from watching those ads. If you continue to watch videos from your favorite YouTube, such support is key.

Windows 10 Tips & Tricks: Top Best Most Useful Features in Windows 10 (2020)

So, without going through to much talk, i will save your time and go right to it! So let’s get started with my tips for Windows 10 in 2020.

Tip #1. Clipboard History: Enjoy next level pasting with clipboard history

Windows 10 version 1809 has announced for the first time the new clipboard experience, so in order to use the new Clipboard History feature you will need to have Windows 10 version 1809 or greater. Although it came up with a new interface and some new features, its not really an complicated experience to use.

How to use Clipboard History feature on Windows 10

The new clipboard features uses the old experience that you already use. But instead of using CTRL + C to copy and CTRL + V shortcut to paste, now you will use the same CTRL + C shortcut to copy text multiple time and next you will use now Windows key + V shortcut to bring the new clipboard history. In this new interface you will find the lists of your copied items. So follow the steps below on how to do so:

  • Use CTRL + C shortcut several times to copy different text form your application
  • Open the document you want to paste it and this time click Windows key + V shortcut to open the clipboard history
  • In the new interface you will find the list of the above copied content
  • Select the content you want to paste

Isn’t that great? No more flipping back and forth between applications to copy and paste each bit separately and no more accidentally losing some copied text because you forgot to paste and copy something new over it. You can copy text, HTML and bitmaps up to four megabytes per item. You may have to activate clipboard history in the settings first, so here’s how to do so!

1. Enabling clipboard using a shortcut

The fasted way to activate clipboard history feature is by using a keyboard feature, so follow the steps:

  • Tap Windows key + V on keyboard

How to pin items in the clipboard history

One more great feature: Let’s say you have some items on your clipboard that you use frequently and you’d like to be able to reuse these even after rebooting your computer. No problem for clipboard history, you can pin these items. Here’s how to:

On the Clipboard History Interface:

  • Click the “ellipsis” next to the item
  • Next select pin.

They’ll still be there the next time you log in. The unpinned items on your clipboard history are cleared every time you restart your PC. Only those items you pinned are going to remain on the clipboard.

How to clear clipboard history on Windows 10

Latest, if you no longer need to use the Clipboard History feature, or is something does not work as expected, you can reset the history to see if the problem may be fixed, so here’s is how to:

Tip #2. Sandbox: Stay safe by using Windows Sandbox feature

Sandbox is another exciting new feature that was introduced with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version 1903). It offers a separate testing environment to try out software or download apps from websites that you’re not so sure about. Sandbox is part of the Pro and Enterprise edition of Windows 10 so unfortunately it’s not available in Windows 10 Home. Also your processor and motherboard need to support virtualization. If the virtualization is supported but not enabled, check your motherboard manufacturer to find it out how to enable it. 

Sandbox is like a virtual PC that’s built right into your Operating System. This way you can run programs or access websites in a safe zone without affecting your system. Although you may be able to create virtual machines to reach the same experience, Windows Sandbox has some key benefits. By using it eliminates the steeps on downloading and creating virtual machines. Every time you run the Sandbox features, it will immediately create a new clean Windows 10 installation. Once the Windows Sandbox gets closed every thing gets wiped out automatically. Also an important thing is that everything happens inside the environment while being isolated from your main installation to offer maximum security.

Windows Sandbox system requirements

Before going through the steps on how to enable Windows Sandbox feature, make sure your device meet these minimum software and hardware requirements:

  • Windows 10 Pro (or Enterprise).
  • Hardware virtualization.
  • AMD64 architecture.
  • 2 processor cores minimum (4 cores with hyperthreading is recommended).
  • 4GB of RAM (8GB is recommended).
