Top 10 Trends in Cybersecurity, 2020: More Ransomware, Evolving Strategies, and New Tools

The evolution of threats and cybersecurity solutions will force CISOs to adopt new approaches to cyber defense.

Boston, January 9, 2020 – The top cybersecurity trends in 2020 will drive organizations’ cybersecurity strategies and investments, and capture the focus of their security leaders. Ransomware activities will target organizations of all sizes, which must look for specific solutions to bolster system and data availability as well as to optimize recovery processes. In addition, 2020 will be an inflection point for many legacy security controls, and companies will be required to move from nearly obsolete signature-based systems and to machine learning-powered solutions. Meanwhile, the lack of skilled cybersecurity professionals will worsen, and chief information security officers will have to look for new sources of talent and radically rethink how they staff their open roles.
