In 2017, cyber security battles may favor criminals even more as the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to expand possible avenues of attack. The 2017 security predictions from FireEye include insights on:
- What investments in security organizations will make in 2017. Security integration and orchestration should be considered the benchmarks of new technology investment.
- Which industry or type of organization might unexpectedly become a target of threat groups in 2017. Religious institutions in Western countries are at the top of the list because they typically lack a robust security program yet maintain contact information and other sensitive data.
- How threat groups will continue to target industrial control systems (ICS) in the near future. A recent report revealed that security patches were not yet available for more than 30% of identified ICS vulnerabilities.
- What does the future hold for less security mature regions. Sophisticated financially motivated espionage actor groups are expected to continue to plague Asia Pacific and EMEA.
