Cybersecurity attacks keep increasing with every passing year. Businesses need to learn about the top cybersecurity threats and take necessary measures. Following is a prediction of the top 10 cybersecurity threats companies should look out for in 2022.
Remote Workforce Becomes a Normal
As employers and employees alike continue to embrace the remote workforce culture, the security parameter will diminish. This will increase the use of personal devices to remotely access business systems. Cyber threat actors will take advantage of this to target employees’ personal devices that are easily vulnerable.
The Ransomware Numbers Reaches a New Height
Ransomware attacks increased over 90% in the first half of 2021. Owing to the hefty ransom that adversaries can demand in the form of cryptocurrencies, we predict that the trend will continue in 2022.
Social Engineering Attacks will Boom
Human error is the #1 cause of data breaches. Due to a lack of cybersecurity knowledge and the attitude that it’s the cyber team’s responsibility, many social engineering attacks will continue to boom in the coming year.
Cloud Vulnerabilities Become the Focus
Cloud adoption is increasing year-over-year. As companies continue to deploy applications and services on the cloud for seamless access, the threat actors will start focusing more on cloud vulnerabilities.
