Cybersecurity Predictions-The year 2020 is going to prove to be a watershed year in many ways. It is the year of the US Presidential Elections, and Trump’s fortunes could swing anywhere. Let us begin by making a cybersecurity prediction concerning the US Presidential Elections.
Hackers will Target the Voter Registration Systems During the 2020 Elections
The 2016 US Presidential Elections were not the cleanest ever. Similarly, one cannot expect the 2020 Elections to be so. Hackers will try their best to target the state and local voter bases to influence the elections one way or the other.
Medium-sized Enterprises will Adopt Multi-factor Authentication
Today, almost every business has a presence online. Hence, you have passwords flying all over the Internet. A significant number of them could have found their way into the Darknet. Therefore, mid-size businesses would require upgrading their security as a safeguard against data breaches. Multi-factor authentication could well become the need of the hour.
Third-party Attacks will Rule the Roost
Hackers always search for the easiest ways to infiltrate into computer networks. It is understandable because it does not make sense to try out strenuous methods when simple ways are readily available. Third-party supply chain attacks present hackers with the ideal opportunity for infiltration. The trend in 2020 is not going to be different in any way.
A GDPR-type Regulation Could Well Come to the US
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the ideal thing that has happened to the European market. It protects ordinary consumers by providing them with the necessary data privacy that they want so badly. The law got its teeth by enforcing the GDPR. It has empowered the enforcement authorities by making it possible to penalize the big fish. Such a stringent regulation is due to the US markets, as well.
