As we approach 2019, we would like to think that cybercrime will be left behind as something of the past. Unfortunately, this is far from the truth. As cybercrimes can be seen shifting their methods and targets, ransomware removal professionals can only learn how to thwart off known attacks. Cybercrime, however, is a relatively untapped gold mine and they have a lot more creativity up their sleeves.
That said, Incyberdefense has predicted some shifts in characteristics of cybercriminals and their potential victims. They say that these shifts in behavior can be expected in the coming year. Let’s have a look at what they are on about.
Data Theft Shifts Towards Data Manipulation
In the past, we have seen how cyber-criminals were content on thieving data by breaking into the source. Now, ransomware removal companies are predicting that these attacks will not target the integrity of data. This will be a more long-term form of damage because the livelihood and reputations of their victims will be on stake.
Demands for Cybersecurity Skills Will Be on the Rise
This increase in number and integrity of cybersecurity attacks will naturally also increase the demand for the skill of ransomware removal. This is why come 2019, we will surely see an increased demand for cybersecurity skills alongside training for insourcing internal security training. We may even see some new job titles like Chief Cybercrime Officer (CCO) in the hierarchy.
Cyber Risk Insurance Will Be a Common Thing
Another forecast made by Incyberdefense is that many companies will be seen opting for cyber risk insurance. Not only will this be the case, but insurance companies will also be seen offering packages that will be tailored to the specific needs of these companies.
Well, all we can say for ransomware removal companies is that 2019 is going to be a long year!
