Ransomware has been at the core of attacks that have threatened to take down the cities. Not only the large companies but also the healthcare providers and school districts have faced ransomware threats, as well.

Enhancing inside threats
The cybersecurity firms themselves are not immune to insider threats. 2020 will bring more breaches, which are mainly caused by the workers if they are targeted, intentional, or the result of simple human error.
Long gone are the days where most of the employees can spot phishing efforts even from a mile. At present, the phishing scam specialists have become much more skilled at crafting all-too-authentic communications. The tech-savvy criminals are now repurposing data from their last successful breach. Some use AI to learn corporate lingo and to collect voice snippets that are used in sophisticated phone phishing scams.
In 2020, the protecting proprietary and personal consumer data will surely become a significant concern for any entity with an online presence.
