2019 Cyber Security Predictions

Prediction #1: AI TECHNIQUES: ATTACKS WILL RESULT, HACKERS

Prediction #2: THE AI SECURITY SOFTWARE HAS MALICIOUS INTENT

Skynet is becoming broader and more expansive. To combat this, organizations have turned to the promise of big data, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning. Automated systems powered by AI could help people better understand the tradeoffs involved when they give up personal information in their malicious software.

Prediction #3: CLOUD WILL SLIP OUT INTO THE WILD

Prediction #4: CRIMINALS GROW MORE CONFIDENT IN DEMANDING THAT RISKS INVOLVE THE CLOUD

Cyber criminals will use big-scale platforms to create instead of just one, five top-notch threats in today’s landscape. Such threats would be very difficult for hackers. Attacks are usually centered on the use of one threat. Bad actors concentrate their efforts on iterating and evolving one threat at a time for effectiveness and evasion.

Prediction #5: IOT-POWERED DISTRIBUTED DENIAL OF CAT

Prediction #6: EVOLVING DEFINITIONS OF PRIVACY

This year we highlighted privacy, finally, due to the European Union’s mid-2018 implementation of the internet. Nearly every nation has not been able to settle on a standard of constant privacy, which will continue to exacerbate in 2019. Singapore and India are consulting to adopt breach notification regimes, while Australia has already enforced GDPR-like legislation due to lack of attribution and accountability.

Prediction #7: MALWARE BOTS TEND TO SPREAD CHAOS

Prediction #8: IDENTITY SUPPLY CHAIN MEETS BLOCKCHAIN

In 2019, cyber activities collide with physical worlds. New techniques will use attacks on critical infrastructure of blockchain, with a touch of “Huh?”

Prediction #9: NATION-STATE ATTACKS WILL CAUSE THE U.N. TO COME TO SOME CONSENSUS

Prediction #10: THE PUBLIC CLOUD WILL EXPERIENCE A MASSIVE SECURITY ATTACK
