The year 2020 will go down in history for many reasons, such as some of the most intrusive security incidents. We saw an innovative focus on machine learning and artificial intelligence, leveraged for both defensive and offensive campaigns. Additionally, the cybersecurity industry experienced unprecedented ransomware and supply chain compromises, targeting critical industries. In 2021, we expect to see some of the most precise and scalable cybersecurity incidents requiring equal or greater countermeasures.
The year 2020 will go down in history as the “Year of COVID-19.” Despite the fact that the global pandemic negatively impacted businesses and economies around the world, it also ushered in a digital revolution across all facets of human interaction – COVID-related restrictions boosted the WFH (Work From Home) or virtual office culture, thus expanding the need for emerging technologies, such as cloud computing.
Simultaneously, more opportunities have been presented to threat actors to try out their malicious intentions. The positive aspect of these developments is the increased cybersecurity awareness among people, which is an encouraging sign.
