The year 2020 brings a whole new decade and it is going to be a watershed in various ways. Everything from Climate Change to tech bursts is revolving around the world. 2020 Cybersecurity predictions are no different.
So with everything taking turns, let’s just take a look at Cybersecurity as well.
The Cybersecurity functioning gap will enlarge
How many people can access Cybersecurity? What is the rate of Cybercrimes worldwide? And last but not least, how quick is tech increasing?
With the speed increasing, it seems tough to crack every obstacle hindering the security. The year 2019 saw the most number of data breaches in history. The year 2020 can see more and more issues.
Third-party attacks will hold the chair
Hackers are suckers for infiltrating computer networks and access the data. Third-party chain attacks bolster opportunities for hackers to access more and more information.
But is this issue going to be different in any way? Nope, 2020 may face an increase in the same.
Healthcare fraud may increase
Everyone is getting interested in Health Insurance these days, and with insurances, the frauds have increased as well. The rising costs of medical availability are the reason why frauds are rising.
Criminals and hackers find this sector as a soft corner as no person is individually harmed. The new year may see charts topping in these frauds.
Medium-scale enterprises will adopt multi-factor authentication
A lot of passwords are floating over the internet, and many of them have found their way in the dark web.
Mid sector business needs to adapt multi-factor security to avoid data floating online. Thus, authentication is the need of the year.
5G can bring a lot of Cybersecurity problems
By 2020, all business ventures and tech sectors will shift to the 5G network. The fast network will boost opportunities, and at the same time, it will increase frauds.
5G’s top beneficiaries could be supply chain management and development. But at the same time, it’s the most risk worthy and vulnerable element.
GDPR could move across the world
General Data Protection Regulation has already entered the European market sectors. It has the ability to provide regular consumers with the protection they require to have.
The new law in Europe has taken a lot of support from GDPR to bind its inside talks. Such amazing tech is still compulsory to come to the rest of the world.
AI-based attacks could be considered basic
AI and ML have become the two most important terms we’ve heard this year. In 2020, we’ll definitely see AI-based phishing attempts that’ll increase to a level that they become common.
These attacks will have regular consequences and wouldn’t be a big deal in a while.
And yes, the humble phishing attempts
The era of digital frauds, phishing attempts have even been asked for before happening.
Any scam links you click or any ad that features is a fraud, leads to leakage of data. These attempts won’t decrease in 2020. We better stay aware!
Hackers will still have some insider support
Not all hacking attacks take place with external tech only, sometimes one of the employees or person is also a part of this hacking attempt.
Any hacking phase can take place on all sorts of tech securities, but sometimes the insider support seems great to them.
Businesses will increase their budget in terms of Cybersecurity
As tech will increase so will the Cybercrimes. With such issues, businesses will be forced to invest more in order to protect their data.
There is a shortage in the number of people working in the field of Cybercrime. When the demand for such people is high, so are their salaries. 2020 will require a lot of people working in this field.
Cloud data will be number one in terms of data breaching
A lot of everyone’s data is present on the cloud. Misconfigured data leakage was one of the topmost issues faced in 2019.
It will remain one of the topmost data breaching issues in 2020 as well, no matter how high security gets.
As you’ve seen the topmost assumptions to take care for in the year of 2020, it’s time we take Cybersecurity in serious consideration.
These predictions will help people be aware of the consequences and taking precautions in advance. But there’s only one problem, if you’re reading this, probably the hackers are too!
