Threats and cyberattacks in 2021: will it be quite the same or will there be surprises?
Threats and cyberattacks in 2021: will it be quite the same or will there be surprises? It is the title of the first cybersecurity special of SIC magazine this year.
In this special edition, in which REALSEC has participated, there are different actors from the cybersecurity scene in Spain who contribute their vision about the evolution of cyberattacks and how we can deal with them in the scenario presented next year.
THREATS AND CYBERATTACKS IN 2021: WILL IT BE QUITE THE SAME OR WILL THERE BE SURPRISES?
Increasing telework as a result of the pandemic, will bring a greater number of cyberattacks targeting to business executive users with privileged access to corporate networks, systems and sensitive data (whaling attacks) .
Massive DDoS attacks targeting IoT devices will proliferate, leveraging 5G bandwidth, along with increased “ransomware as a services” attacks and “cloud” infrastructures.
Simultaneously, “Cryptohacking” will appear on stage, targeting the new Blockchain Infrastructures.
