Microsoft announced the latest trends in cyber threats and security for 2019 and beyond. Artificial intelligence, cloud computing, quantum informatics, botnets and ransomware will be the key issues in cyber security.
New technologies bring new capabilities to companies and bring new generation threats. In order to overcome cyber threats, Microsoft announced the methods and security predictions to be used in 2019.
Worldwide artificial intelligence spending is expected to reach 46 billion dollars by 2020, while 25 percent of this growth will be in the areas of banking and finance security. The artificial intelligence market, which was $ 37.5 million in 2017 in the Middle East and Africa, is expected to exceed 100 million dollars in 2021. Although it is expected that cybercrime will cost 6 trillion dollars to the world by 2021, artificial intelligence based solutions are expected to contribute up to 15.7 trillion dollars to the global economy.
Expenditure on cloud services will increase
Security spending in cloud computing is expected to rise to $ 3.5 billion by 2021.
In 2019, hackers will accelerate their work by taking increasingly more sophisticated security measures.
Botnet and ransomware
Over the past year, more than 230,000 computers have been infected by the wannacrypt virus. Similarly, ransomware will continue to be popular methods used by cybercriminals in 2019. By 2020, more than 25% of corporate attacks are expected to occur via IoT, and 10% of IT security budgets will be allocated to IoT.
