How software company security priorities are changing

The cyberthreat landscape continues to change along with technological advancements. Industry thought leaders expect to see changes in software companies’ approach to security and the defenses they put in place to protect their businesses and their users. Here are five of developers’ cybersecurity priorities for 2023 and predictions for how software companies will adapt their processes to address them.

International data protection with EU-entities of US-headquartered IaaS providers

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a legal mandate across the EU, requires enhanced protection for EU personal data transferred to countries with inadequate levels of data protection safeguards—including the US. The EU-US Privacy Shield, which was in place until 2020, facilitated these protections but was invalidated by the Schrems II ruling as a result of US surveillance concerns.

Enterprise Hosting: A solution for the ever-changing digital world

Having your websites and apps run smoothly at all times is crucial to the success of your brand, and having something go wrong can be catastrophic. But getting bogged down in all of the things that go into setting up and managing them is time-consuming and complicated—especially if your tech team's capabilities are on the lighter side. With an enterprise hosting solution, everything is handled for you. You get infrastructure, management, security, scaling, and more all rolled into one.

Building a trust-centric culture for success

What’s important when building a new business? A good idea is vital, obviously, plus the right people, hard work, experienced investors, and so on. Building trust is important, but probably far down the list. It’s not that trust isn’t important, it’s just likely to be put aside while working on tasks that are perceived as more time-sensitive or of a higher priority, especially those which directly and noticeably impact the bottom line.

Adopt a 'GDPR everywhere' strategy

Companies used to have an easier time complying with regulations, but compliance has really never been a straightforward endeavor. In the past, there was one set of rules for businesses to obey, the local rules in the place where companies do business. If the business expanded into new parts of the world, they would have to comply with new rules, but these would apply only to those new territories. The global economy means an end to this approach.
