The threats in cybersecurity will be challenging, intense, and bizarre in 2020, and organizations should be prepared to overcome these.
FREMONT, CA: The threat of cybersecurity was a huge problem in 2019, and no sector was unaffected by data breaches, including financial, health, government, and environment. It’ll also continue to be a problem in 2020. Organizations need to know what to lookout. With the changing complexity of cyber threats, certain specific approaches focus on new markets and innovations that are implemented annually. Here are some of the key risks to cybersecurity that businesses will concentrate on by 2020.
Cybersecurity threats will target a host of technologies in 2020, including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and 5 G will have a major impact on the landscape of cybersecurity in the coming year. It is the primary target for hackers, as many vendors use AI for its easy implementation of nature and accessibility.
On the other hand, it is anticipated that 5 G, whose adoption will spread evenly, will bring in new threats to cybersecurity. This is because the greater the bandwidth, the greater it will give hackers a chance to launch powerful and more extensive attacks that can cause damage.
Organizations are increasingly migrating their data to the cloud, thinking this could help them mitigate threats to cybersecurity. This will not, however, guarantee that data is in any way more secure. Indeed, due to the huge use of cloud services, cloud jacking will become a prominent cybersecurity threat by 2020. Consequently, as the cloud attacks grow complex, cloud security infrastructure should also increase in complexity.
Cybercriminals will take the opportunity to launch phishing attacks on all platforms as security gaps in emerging technologies increase. Even so, phishing is an old cybersecurity threat; its effectiveness will continue to persist in 2020.
Internet of Things
Many citizens use smart devices, and a tremendous amount of cybersecurity threats would arise from the widespread deployment of IoT devices. These devices will increase vulnerabilities and risks to the attack surface. Security experts also don’t have time to develop new strategies to keep up with all the IoT devices that are emerging.
