2015 Year in Review

Hi folks,
As 2016 has gotten started, I read before the new year an article entitled year in review and it is quite interesting. I am wondering what you think will be the big issues of 2016. Here is mine in no particular order.

  • We will see more targeted breaches where people will have to do something to have something done. E-mail will be sent, and phishers may just send them to their own bank page to enter the info with the web site of the bank compromised. The bank doesn’t know this, and everyone who uses the web may be compromised. It’ll start slow, but I think phishers know they can probably pull this off.
  • We’ll see lots more spam than we ever have before. We’ll get so much spam with stuff we didn’t ask for, even trying to get ourselves removed from said lists will be a bigger problem. These spam messages may ask for info to get us removed more than an E-mail address.
  • As blog posts across the blog have said, I think we will be hit with more apps we can’t trust. I don’t download every app I see, and if I don’t go looking for it, I definitely don’t download it. You just don’t know what you’re going to get.
  • SMS is going to pick up. Recently, got a message through e-mail to SMS saying something about money to paypal or other bank, and it was laced with HTML code to make it look like it would be displayed in a browser. I didnt respond, but we’ll be inidated with those and claiming to click on links which could infect our phones.
  • I continue to watch the breach aspect, and small businesses will be targeted this year as indicated by other predictions. We will be asked for more personal info to do basic tasks in the coming years, and people will hand it over.

Maybe my predictions are way out there, but I’m basing it off of what I read, and my thoughts. Maybe the major breaches will be all, and nothing else, but I will put it out there so people can comment on them and let me know their thoughts. Please use the comment system if you can, so we can have a dialogue. You can also E-mail me, and who knows, we may talk about your comments on the podcast. Thoughts?

Be Sociable, Share!
