As we embark on a new year and continue to address the many challenges of the COVID19 pandemic, we predict the following developments in cybersecurity:
- Hackers will continue to target remote workers. When insecure WiFi is being used, hackers will prey on remote workers with phishing attacks. Be sure to check out our tips for keeping remote workers safe.
- Healthcare organizations will be targeted. Healthcare continues to be a profitable target for hackers, with more than 41 million patient records breached in 2019 (tripling the 2018 report). The implications of this in the midst of a global COVID19 pandemic could be catastrophic.
- Zoom-bombing will get worse before it gets better. The platform has been a useful tool for families and professionals alike. But hackers have been known to “gate-crash” Zoom meetings and share disturbing or distracting images.
- More companies will utilize security compliance as a service and outsource their IT roles. It’s not easy to keep up with every new service and product. As a Managed Services Provider, we can manage all of your needs—or assist your internal IT team with the process. Contact us today.
