As the trend in breaches have not seemed to slow down in any way, it is important that businesses prepare for future cybercrimes. Organizations will most likely encounter a breach, small or large, at some point if they do not have an strong MSP already in place. One of the best practices to first follow is to be aware of all potential issues. Below are the cybersecurity projections to expect within the next few years.
- “By 2025, cybercrime is estimated to cost $10.5 trillion globally, increasing by 15 percent year over year.
- Attackers will zero in on biometric hacking and expose vulnerabilities in touch ID sensors, facial recognition, and passcodes.
- Skimming isn’t new, but the next frontier could feature an enterprise-wide attack on a national network of a major financial institution, resulting in the loss of millions of dollars.
- It is predicted that a major wireless carrier will be attacked with a simultaneous effect on both iPhones and Androids. Cybercriminals could steal personal information from millions of consumers, possibly disabling all wireless communications in the United States.
- A cloud vendor may suffer a breach, compromising the sensitive information of hundreds of Fortune 1,000 companies.
- The online gaming community will be an emerging hacker surface, with cybercriminals posing as gamers and gaining access to the computers and personal data of trusting players.”
