18 Cyber Security Trends We Are Watching in 2018

We had an interesting year in 2017. If any trend is obvious, it’s that 2018 will continue to be interesting for the cybersec industry. How interesting? Here is are the 18 trends that we think will be making the headlines and should be on your radar for 2018.

The Return of the Spam

In 2004 Bill Gates said that spam would be dead in 2 years. Over a decade later, things are still pretty bad. While we can stop greater than 99.95% of spam email, it’s the very few that do get through that are increasingly sophisticated and preying on user vulnerability. You used to get emails focused on Viagra and reclaiming lost fortunes. Now, the spammer is more interested in having you click a malicious link and getting your password or triggering a ransomware and then doing the real damage from

Executive Insights: 2017 Threat Trends – Looking at Our Threat Reports

The expanding attack surface

2017 was the year of digital transformation. Traditional network environments were upended by the rapid adoption of things like cloud infrastructure and cloud-based applications and services, the virtualization of data centers, the integration of billions of new, connected IoT devices, and the continued expansion of mobility, BYOD, and related applications.

Because this change has happened so rapidly, many organizations have had to scramble to find ways to extend security to new network ecosystems, devices, and applications. For example, organizations today use an average of about 200 different applications, ranging from productivity tools used internally, to consumer-facing applications that provide quick access to data and enable tap-of-the-screen transactions. These applications span from remote devices to cloud services, and mine deep into the data center for real-time information. The number of high-profile data breaches and the resulting theft of hundreds of millions of data

2018 cybersecurity trends and predictions

The New Year is almost upon us and with it new development in cyber security. 2017 was “exciting” year for many of us in the industry and the trend will continue into 2018. Here are some predictions of developments I see in the New Year:

AI-powered attacks

With abundance of free and commercial statistical AI implementations, it’s just a matter of time before bad guys jumped on an AI trend. State actors have been using it for a while, passing the technology to closely associated proxies and should be the year for a wider cyber-criminal adoption of AI. Some of possibilities for AI-related attacks include:

2017 Threat Trends – The Year in Review

2017 was another landmark year for cybersecurity. In reviewing our quarterly Threat Landscape reports, it is clear that 2017 has been notable primarily for three things: the rapid digital transformation and expansion of the potential attack surface, the increasing sophistication of cyber attacks, and a lapse in basic cybersecurity hygiene, largely being driven by digital transformation coupled with the growing cybersecurity skills gap.

Let’s take a look at some of the issues that have challenged the cybersecurity community.
