Statistics show that the total damages caused by cybercrimes in 2022 reached USD 6 trillion. 70% of small businesses are unprepared for incoming threats, and 88% of seasoned unethical hackers can infiltrate organizations within 12 hours. GlobalLogic engineers are sure that integrating cybersecurity systems at the early stages of software development will strengthen personal data security and reduce potential losses from hacking.
According to forecasts, the main challenge for cybersecurity specialists in 2023 will be the use of AI (artificial intelligence programs) to automate and develop new ways of hacking. Mobile devices, SaaS applications, as well as servers for storing large amounts of personal data can become sensitive to new viruses.
“Programs used by cyber fraudsters are improving. Considering this, future cyberattacks and hackings will be more extensive and occur more often. Overall forecasts are also disappointing: by 2025, 45% of global organizations will be impacted by a supply chain attack, and the cost of cybercrime will grow to $10.5 trillion. To combat growing threats, complex software solutions should be implemented. Our engineers are already implementing such developments, thereby strengthening the world’s cybersecurity: they create the latest security systems, update the software in a timely manner, assess the risks and stability of individual systems.” — noted Denys Kudriavchenko, Head of Security Risk & Compliance у GlobalLogic.
Ukrainian specialists are working on cybersecurity projects all over the world. They develop and implement digital protection programs in healthcare, education, electronic payments, media, mobile applications, etc. Software solutions from GlobalLogic engineers protect users’ homes, starting from video surveillance systems and ending with home routers.
Thus, GlobalLogic engineers helped the information and network security company develop a home router that warns the user about cyber threats. It supplemented the customer’s cybersecurity ecosystem and helped to attract and protect 23 million subscribers in Europe alone. This equipment is used by about 500 communication service providers and more than 1,000 enterprises in the EU.
What Ukrainian engineers protect: homes, payments, medical devices
Engineers also make a significant contribution to improving the security of smart homes. After all, the trend towards the digitalization of buildings and the spread of IoT use (Internet of Things technology), together with additional comfort, opens up new opportunities for cybercriminals.
One of the GlobalLogic partners is a door control application developer. The software allows you to close and open the door at a signal or remotely, helps to receive guests, and improve the general security of the house.
However, engineers developed systems not only for private dwellings but also for multistory complexes. With the help of Ukrainian specialists, an application was created that allows you to administer houses with many residents. The created software together with IoT devices allows quickly configuring access rights, managing guest visits, issuing one-day passes, and improving video surveillance.
Ukrainian engineers also paid attention to mobile systems for making and processing payments. Those systems operate with a large amount of sensitive personal data, therefore, when developing an application for contactless payment, a secure software environment was created. At the same time, its support requires minimal investment.
In the healthcare field, Ukrainian specialists conducted an audit, penetration testing, risk and sustainability of systems assessment for the manufacturer of mobile cardio devices and the developer of advanced equipment for mammography. Regarding the latter, GlobaLogic engineers also helped protect against the North Korean WannaCry virus, which, in particular, infected about 1000 PCs in UK hospitals.
The regular system audit remains an important part of business cyber defense. For instance, in the internal corporate education field: engineers tested the specialists’ training program of the leading carbonated soft drink manufacturer for sustainability. The check revealed 24 vulnerabilities, 17 of which were critical. This encouraged the customer to increase funding for cyber defense and re-check the system after fixing the vulnerabilities found.
