the 2020 crystal ball_

what's next for security?




As 2019 closes it's time for trends and predictions. 

There are three dominant geopolitical events next year that will guide many cyber activities, either by providing motivation and opportunity for attackers or by muddying the waters and adding to the confusion: the US presidential election (and possibly presidential impeachment), the modern day rendition of Downton Abbey that is Brexit or even the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Will that be all? No, of course not. Things will happen as they do every year, and cyber will both be its own battlefield and affect all other means of conflict just as it did in 2019.

Listen to Cybereason CSO Sam Curry and GuidePoint VP, GRC Services & CISO Gary Brickhouse discuss what 2020 will bring for the security industry.
