“There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come.” – Victor Hugo
The world has reached a point of inflection in cybercrime. As cyberspace abounds with cyber privateers, and many nations of the world become havens for these modern-day pirates, it appears that 2013 is the year of hacking for criminal gain.
In our recently released predictions for 2013, our CTO Raimund Genes illustrated his strategic vision per the future of cybercrime. The predictions highlight improvements in threats we will encounter in 2013, more specifically on the attack vectors used by cybercriminals. Raimund predicts that attackers will shift their strategy from developing sophisticated malware to focusing on the means to infiltrate networks and evade detection.
As we move to Web 3.0, it is important for us to acknowledge the risk we will face when it comes to our business and digital lifestyles in general. It is also fundamental that we begin to increase our situational awareness per the tactics employed by these actors so as to sustain commerce and finance.
