Global information security threats: trends of 2018

The nature of global threats to security systems is changing every year. According to forecasts, angry customers will put pressure on governments, demanding tougher legislation on data protection, and this, in turn, will entail additional costs. Strengthening the emerging trends will be accompanied by the growth of major global threats to security systems, which companies will face in 2018.

The use of Internet of things devices by organizations is expanding, but most of these devices do not meet the security requirements. In the Internet ecosystem of things, conditions arise in which organizations can use personal data in an undesirable way for the customers. In a corporate environment, organizations will find it difficult to know that information has gone beyond their network, and data is secretly captured and transferred to various devices, such as smartphones and smart TVs. If there are any gaps in the data protection system or if transparency is breached, the organizations will most likely be held accountable to regulators and customers. Compromising Internet devices of things in industrial control systems can lead to physical damage and even loss of life.

Supply Chain
Vulnerability issues in supply chains have been rising for many years. Organizations quite often share with suppliers very valuable and confidential information. When you transmit this information, there is a risk of leakage. The risks of confidentiality, integrity and accessibility of information are increasing. Many production organizations lost production opportunities when they were blocked, affecting, among other things, the supply chain.

Crime as a service
In 2018, the significant growth of cybercrime continues. Criminal organizations will diversify their activities, embracing new markets, and standardizing it at the global level. Some organizations will establish links with existing criminal structures, while others will focus exclusively on cybercrime. In 2018, "novice" cybercriminals, who do not have deep technical knowledge, will have the opportunity to buy tools and services that help carry out attacks, which under other conditions they would not be able to do.
