The coming year will see more of the same attacks as 2021. But there will also be new ones, and new considerations.
December 29, 2021
In 2022, global spending on information security and risk management tools and services will reach $172 billion, according to Gartner. That represents an 11% increase from 2021. That’s because cyber threats will continue nonstop. COVID-19 unleashed hell for organizations as attackers took advantage of pandemic fears and vulnerabilities. That activity will not slow.
For the coming year, ransomware, APIs, connected equipment and sensors rank as some of the biggest areas of concern. In fact, observers predict hits in new areas: attacks on medical devices in hospitals and other health care settings, as well as on patient billing systems; on remote-controlled tractors and other equipment in the agricultural sector; on IoT sensors that support smart cities; and so on. Organizations will turn even more to managed security service providers for guidance and management of their environments.
Find out more about the cyber threats coming in 2022 so you can better protect customers (and your own operations). Check out our slideshow above.
