2020 Cybersecurity Predictions

The increasing number of cybersecurity risks has increased in the last year, with even more worrying news predictions expected to be obtained when we advance through 2020, according to a group of cyber specialists that presented SIW with insights into the next year’s key danger forecasts.

With more cloud apps introduced, IoT grows with a myriad of more gadgets and data supplies are overflowing, a rapidly evolving cyber threat environment continues to grow. The way organizations and their security personnel handle this increased risk also reflect on the strategic approach they take to establish a comprehensive attack plan, rather than respond when an incident happens. Most CSOs can appreciate the challenge of avoiding blind spots while maintaining cyber vigilance.

So what do our technology specialists in the cybersecurity world expect for the future in 2020? Throughout the year our analysts narrowed their scope to the Top 6 Cyber Threats of 2020 while the potential threats to the New Year appear infinite.

Srini Samudrala, Vice President & Chief Architect of Infinite says that while the IoT transition is still here and the full digital transformation pledge will eventually be fulfilled in 2020, the danger will increase. He claims IoT insurance should start building an insurance paradigm shift.

The estimates of the number of IoT devices expected to exist by 2020 vary greatly from 9.9 billion to 50 billion, according to Jonathan DiVincenzo, Signal Sciences Product Head. He said it would probably put us on the low side of those figures, not including smartphones and routers. But it remains a high priority to protect the trillions of apps connecting regularly with enterprise networks and IoT suppliers.

Deloitte added: “Security for IoT systems should be elevated to the next standard at the current era of networking,” Sean Peasley, Internet of Things (IoT) security chief at Deloitte Cyber. In 2020, a comprehensive transition is expected, because companies require protection rather than the current infrastructure. Safety in software and apps. The effect of not prioritizing this will grow serious, as connected devices develop from seemingly trivial instruments like thermostats and coolers to higher stakes like autonomous cars and more. Organizations would place physical safety, anonymity and more at risk for end-users without building security in those settings.
