Abusing automated cybersecurity tools, taking advantage of unstructured data and leveraging 5G networks to mount insanely powerful attack are just some of the tactics cybercriminals are expected to employ in 2020 and beyond.
A poll of the Infosec Europe community – mostly C-level professionals in the cybersecurity space, found that we may very well see a whole new breed of cybersecurity threats in the coming year.
Next year, more security automation tools will be deployed, according to Deloitte cyber risk partner, Peter Gooch. If done well, it will ensure organisations tackle threats with agility. However, when executed poorly, it will significantly complicate things. Gooch also believes hackers would increasingly target unstructured data to both hide and launch attacks, which means businesses must implement robust governance.
