Cybersecurity Predictions 2020 Vedere Labs
It’s that time of year again, where we sit down as a team and discuss what trends we expect to accelerate and what new ones will emerge in the next 12 months. What struck us this year as we narrowed down more than 50 predictions to our final eight was just how quickly the cybersecurity industry is changing. Threats and attackers are becoming more sophisticated and continue to wreak havoc on businesses in every size and industry, with no signs of deceleration.
While we can’t put everything that we think will happen in 2020 on this list, we have chosen a few that we think are particularly impactful. The predictions we chose focused on topics we believe are bold and timely, as well as rooted in the trends our customers and researchers saw take place this past year.
What these trends all have in common is that they will require companies to be more strategic when it comes to advancing their security controls in 2020. Companies in every industry will need to get ahead of emerging and growing technologies – like 5G, AI, and the cloud – and consider how their existing technologies may pose new threats in today’s cybersecurity landscape. To do that, they should reflect on how their existing tools fit these trends and others that might affect them in 2020 and, if needed, adapt strategically and consider new technologies that can help protect against an attack or limit its impact.
The good news is that, while all signs point to attackers growing stronger and more sophisticated, the cybersecurity industry is also becoming more robust. Innovation is at an all-time high and customers are the benefactors of that. Together, we can strategically tackle this challenge and emerge from 2020 stronger than ever.
