Increased Implementation also means increased cyber threats and hacking along with ransomware. Here are some of the top prioritized cybersecurity trends that shape the industries below.
FREMONT, CA: Most modern citizens have accepted the risks of putting their lives into the digital platform. Hackers have noticed, and they've held individuals and complete companies' security through the use of ransomware and related threats. In the seventh annual report by TUV Rheinland was based on Cybersecurity Trends for 2020. The report is based on cybersecurity experts mentioning the seven cybersecurity trends, which will be essential to be aware of in 2020. These involve attacks on smart supply chains, threats to medical equipment, and weaknesses in real-time operating systems.
Smart consumer devices will enhance
The number and performance of individual intelligent devices are increasing every year, making them a popular target for cybercriminals. With the increase of smart devices, the attack surface can increase hundreds of times rapidly.
New targets evolved
By the development of software and hardware platforms, transportations and transport infrastructure are connected. The disadvantage is the growing number of vulnerabilities that attackers can exploit. Widespread cyberattacks are targeting transport can affect not only the safety of individual road users but could also lead to widespread disruption of traffic and public security.
Hacking into supply chains systems
With the goal of increased efficiency and lower costs, smart supply chains use the Internet of Things (IoT) automation, robotics, and big data management. The intelligent supply chains are increasingly representing the virtual warehousing, or place where a product or its components can be identified and located at any time. Besides, smart supply chains are effective and efficient but are also prone to cyberattacks.
Medical devices and cyberthreats
In the past years, personal medical devices such as insulin pumps, heart and glucose monitors, defibrillators, and pacemakers were connected to the Internet as part of the "Internet of Medical Things" (IoMT). At the same time, the researchers have also identified several software vulnerabilities and demonstrated the utility of attacks on these products, which can lead to targeted attacks on both individuals and entire product classes, notes the organization.
