Cybersecurity in 2020: Top Ten Predictions and Recommendations

12 December 2019

According to Vailmail's 2018 Global Information Security Survey, over 6.4 billion fake emails are sent everyday by nation-state cyber-attack groups, criminal cyber-attack groups, and hackers worldwide. This results in the theft of over 2 billion private identities and $3.5 billion in cyber damages daily. To combat the ever-growing global cyber-attacks, the cybersecurity marketplace has expanded to $100 billion in annual purchases of software, hardware, and related cybersecurity professional services.  The spend is bigger than ever, but the question remains, what are the top cybersecurity trends organizations can expect to see and address as we enter a new digital decade?
