Change is a part of the technology industry. There are predictions you need to know.
Technology is learning in 2022, giving life to trends that are changing the industry. Every day we get closer to mastering artificial intelligence. Just like how a smartphone changed our daily lives a decade ago, that same technology impacts all forms of cyber security.
2021 brought a strong focus on digitalization, virtual and augmented realities. As a result, a global pandemic changed the way that people want to work with others. Because of significant advances in AI robotics, cryptocurrency and machine learning came new forms of hacking.
Deep learning computers brought us deep fakes too. For instance, the SolarWinds supply chain attack.
Unfortunately, cybercrimes ended up more sophisticated and harder to track over time.
According to the World Economic Forum, because of decentralized networks in play like cryptocurrency, you need to know about potential cyber threats in the new year.
- The Explosion of Misinformation and Fake News– Researchers believe hackers plan to continue disrupting whatever online flow they can find. Because of vaccine mandate exploitation, supply chains, the healthcare field, or the 2022 U.S. Midterm Election, it’s clear to expect misinformation on the radar of anyone in the tech industry.
- Cryptocurrency– A nightmare due to lacking a centralized internal system is the best way to describe the reality of crypto. Not only is cryptocurrency physically harmful to the environment, but untraceable. Good luck tracking anything that goes through bitcoin. As a result of the way cryptocurrency runs, those markets involved with them are highly volatile. If not, they are highly susceptible to scams online.
- Mobile Malware Attacks– Not everyone uses a Multi-Factor Authentification program (MFA) on their cell phone. And this puts a lot of accounts, namely social media ones, at significant risk for a security problem.
- The Weaponization of Deep Fakes– Imagine someone getting into your accounts with a deep fake. Deep fakes remain a modern problem that would not have been possible thirty years ago. As a result of fake audio and video, it’s even easier to get scammed than ever. Take, for instance, the countless fakes of celebrities and politicians online doing or saying things that never happened.
- Develop Stronger Ransomware– Just like malware, ransomware continues to evolve at a pace where it’s possible to see extensive data breaches in the future. If you’re not ready to deal with cybercrime, expect our specialists to be prepared to go to bat for you.
