Forecasting App Longevity By CCM (Cyber Crime Management)

Not only in biology, but lifecycle also is not a definition used for animals or plants. In business, the lifecycle is an important term to describe the lifespan of a product through many phases from manufacturing, end-product delivering,... to the go-to-market. It repeatedly operates to maintain and improve the product to ensure its existence on the market. And the length that product can exist on the market, they call “Product Longevity”


 

1. What is App Longevity?

 

Similarly, Application is not an exception. Application lifecycle is a side-branch of the Product lifecycle, which focuses specifically on software application management. However, analyzing and estimating “App Longevity” is more complicated, because it is a non-physical product. The duration of an app lifecycle can fully depend on its complexity and usability on the market.

 

Generally, an application lifecycle can be divided into six stages:


 

 

Regardless of its complexity, applications are more positive to sustain than traditional products. When the development stage can closely work to support other phases to adapt market needs and outperform its competitors to survive in the longer term.

 

A web or application lifecycle can be estimated to sustain in 12-18 months or even longer, and great longevity can be counted up to 15 years. But this is just in an ideal growing condition. In fact, in an application's lifespan, it takes more than just developing suitable functionality to adapt to the market, sometimes, the drawbacks can come from outside the organization, cybercrime.

 

2. Cybercrime

 

Cybercrime is any activity from criminals that happen in the cyber-world including computers, networks, electronic devices,...

 

Cybercriminals can attack for many purposes, from generating profit, disabling computers, devices to damage resources of a company, to spreading malware, virus,... to steal confidential information from infected devices or networks. 

 

Besides financial effects, cybercrime critically affects your application longevity due to the risks and fraud it brings. As many workers switch to working from home due to the pandemic, cybercrimes are expected to grow in the future. To defend against attacks from cybercrime, we need solutions to support our enterprises in estimating and analyzing digital frauds, cybercrimes to forecast and increase the app longevity. Cyber Crime Management can be a suitable solution for your organization.


 

3. What is Cyber Crime Management?

 

The Cyber Crime Management (CCM) created aims to help organizations analyze suspected attacks and forecasting perpetrators that can affect your app longevity.

 

To apply CCM to your organization, you can build a security program or team that can identify and defend your application from cyberattacks or threats. There are many standards or methods to customize your specific program, but without a proper cybersecurity lifecycle framework, your cybersecurity investments could fail. You can take reference from the NIST (National Institute of Standards Technology) framework, which has been applied in 73% of organizations worldwide.
