Trends from 2018, what can we learn?

This is an article i definitely want to talk about. It is entitled A Look Back at the 2018 Security Landscape and it has some very interesting things in here.

Phishing has gone up 269 percent. That is a huge jump, and I have a hunch that it won’t get any better, will it?

Social engineering has also been in cybercriminals minds as they are using fraudulent addresses to get at their victims.

The good news is that Ransomwhere is declining, but it is still an issue for companies. I predicted that this was going to be a continuing increase, and I’m glad I’m wrong on this.

To take its place, buisness email compromise is on the rise, and that may be the upcoming trend this year. This could be just as bad as the ransomware that was once so common.

The program vulnerability landscape is also increasing. I don’t remember what the final number Steve mentioned in one of the final security now’s of 2018, but it was in the thousands for the CVE index. Trend Micro’s zero day program will continue to be busy as well as other bug bounty programs.

Is there anything else that they missed that yoou noticed? I’m curious on what you think. Thanks for reading!
