CYFIRMA has announced its Cyber-threat Predictions for 2020.
The company’s proprietary Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technology analyzed global threat indicators and revealed that trade wars will fuel cyber-attacks on rivals, with more nations adopting cyber-warfare capabilities and starved nations continuing to use cyber-attacks as the new engine to grow their economy. The company also predicts that new technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), Autonomous Critical Infrastructure, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Industry 4.0, Cryptocurrency, Cloud, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Drones will subject government and businesses to further cyber risks. CYFIRMA’s research indicates hackers’ interests are growing towards traditional and non-traditional industries such as research institutions, chemical, shipping, logistics, product and technology companies.
2019 was a watershed year for cyber-security. CYFIRMA’s Threat Intelligence saw an unprecedented onslaught of cyber-attacks led by state-sponsored hackers performing corporate espionage in support of their government’s agenda to gain geopolitical supremacy and support local companies in competing with rivals from other nations. Hackers have gained momentum in finding new avenues to attack industries and nations, as IT systems remained vulnerable with software programs and applications that are outdated, poorly configured and laden with weaknesses. Governments and businesses must adopt a much more proactive approach in preventing reputational damage, ensuring business continuity and protecting national interests, and this can only be accomplished when real-time insights and actionable intelligence work hand in hand with other cyber-security measures.
CYFIRMA’s threat and risk predictions for 2020 is based on its research and data analyzed from multitude of sources worldwide. To download, complete the form below:
