Trend Mi­cro’s Cy­ber Se­cu­rity 2014 Pre­dic­tions

HWM (Malaysia) - - REPORT -

Trend Mi­cro has listed a num­ber of 2014 pre­dic­tions on the fu­ture cy­ber-threat land­scape. Among Trend Mi­cro’s pre­dic­tions that are likely to hap­pen in­clude the rise of online bank­ing threats due to the preva­lence us­age of mo­bile apps, al­low­ing more cy­ber­crim­i­nals to in­ter­cept au­then­ti­ca­tion num­bers. Trend Mi­cro also pre­dicts the in­crease use of tar­geted-at­tack-type method­olo­gies, brought on by the ease of use and ef­fec­tive­ness in evad­ing de­tec­tion. Be­sides that, Trend Mi­cro also pre­dicted more ma­jor data breaches in 2014. Web servers, such as those from the Adobe and Ya­hoo! Ja­pan in­ci­dents, will re­main as prime tar­gets for cy­ber­crim­i­nals, who will al­ways uti­lize new tools and ex­ploits to break in.
