Ramped-up attacks on the healthcare Internet of Things. More success with cracking passwords and biometrics. Increased risk from insider attacks. A heightened need for chief risk officers. This is what 2018 will look like on the cybersecurity front, according to professional services firm Aon’s industry specialists in its new 2018 Cybersecurity Predictions report.
“In 2018, we anticipate heightened cyber exposure due to a convergence of three trends: first, companies’ increasing reliance on technology; second, regulators’ intensified focus on protecting consumer data; and third, the rising value of non-physical assets,” said Jason Hogg, CEO of Aon Cyber Solutions.
