The biggest cyber breach in 2018 was the Singaporean SingHealth data breach. This breach had triggered precautionary alarms for consumers, organizations and even ransomware removal companies. Well, one reason why this attack happened in the first place was because Singapore is progressively a Smart Nation. This means that it has more to risk in terms of cyber security.
This is exactly why Singapore and the whole world needs to stay ahead of the game. The malware landscape is continually evolving and getting stronger as time passes by. This is why our ransomware removal and deflection game should be up to date. That said, let’s enlighten you about the cyber security trends that 2019 is forecasted to bring along with it.
A report called The State of Mobile Fraud 2018 recognized that mobile cybercriminals are going to take the route of click fraud via advertisements. These are usually ads which are meant to generate revenue with the help of clicks but this problem has already reached the world of desktop computers. This makes mobile devices a very inviting target.
These attacks signify those that aren’t sent out for the mass community but are meant for exactly those victims that were intended by cyber-criminals This is exactly what CryptoLocker and WannaCry did and these booby-trapped attachments are hand-delivered so as to ask for higher ransoms. The aforementioned report is, therefore, destined to inspire copycats in 2019.
Admin Tools Targeted
The dedicated tools in operating software like that of Microsoft Windows are another potential target for malware. These targets are known as ‘living off the land’ because malware isn’t sent in through attachments. Instead, hackers tend to recognize the loopholes in these systems in order to infect computers with their tailored malware.
In order to stay safe from these trends in 2019, your ransomware removal game will have to stay one step ahead of cybercriminals. This is why all organizations should be prepared to carry out their due diligence and not take these threats for granted.
