It's always challenging to make the right choice when making decisions. In 2020, the cybersecurity trend list given below will help the enterprises to invest in the right technology and prepare for 2020 and the future.
FREMONT, CA: Hackers are outplaying the defenders by launching a ransomware attack every 14 seconds. They are planning to get to at least 11 seconds by 2021. It is not based on the speed alone, but the variety of attacks that make the hackers a dangerous opponent. Cybersecurity is the chessboard where the hackers are looking to checkmate the defenders. Cases of cyber-attacks are increasing, criminals are continually developing more sophisticated attack methods, and innocent tech consumers are more revealing their data to data thieves. Below given are some of the cybersecurity trends to be prepared against the evolving nature of cyberthreats.
A realistic approach to cloud security
Everyone thought that if the data is stored in cloud applications like Microsoft or Google, it should be secure. That theory is fading slowly. The truth is that the data users store in SaaS applications like G Suite and Microsoft Office 365 are not protected from attacks. These include human error, malicious deletion requests, sync errors, phishing, and more.
When more businesses move to the cloud, cyber threats also increases. They are so effective that they can almost avoid two-factor authentication, making service accounts, and shared mailboxes vulnerable.
Mobile is the main target
The number of the user using mobile has increased and will continue to increase the amount of business data that is stored in them. This is one of the main reasons why mobiles are seen as the primary cyberattack platform in 2020. Mobiles can override traditional secure email gateways. They are programmed to block phishing emails for protecting corporate emails on the mobile. Once hackers gain access, they can steal business data quickly.
The next-generation high-speed mobile internet, aka, 5G network will enhance the IoT-based attack. 5G architecture is new, complex, and needs a higher level of security, which many cloud vendors will not be able to provide. Hackers will use the blind spot to sneak in malware and steal large volumes of your SaaS data at breakneck speed.
