Top 10 Cyber Security Predictions for 2021
Making predictions for 2020 seemed relatively straightforward 12 months ago. The number of cyber-attacks was set to increase, and the ongoing digital transformation movement was still going to introduce new risks and vulnerabilities. But 2020 has been turbulent across the world, and the lasting effects of the last 12 months are challenging to predict.
As we look forward to 2021, we expect challenges to persist as organizations look to ensure their remote workforces’ security and productivity. We also expect a reset in the attitudes towards risk as organizations grapple with the dilemma of tackling new challenges with lower security budgets. And, we also anticipate the increased use of new technologies to open new security vulnerabilities.
