When the new year comes around, cyber security experts will be ready. The expectation for change has never been higher, and the industry is buzzing with gossip. The bulk of it relates to business changes, but there is plenty of advancements to go around for home consumers.
1. Crypto Security
IT support Melbourne is already prepping for the biggest security upgrade in crypto history. The next big shiny thing is always around the corner with crypto, and that means that scammers will be on the lookout for the next mark. NFT’s changed the industry, so an upgrade in crypto security is a guarantee.
2. Automated Scam Controls
Scam controls are already hitting their max limits with automation. It is a catch 22 for antivirus companies that are forced to take control away from consumers to protect them from themselves. The override function exists for more tech savvy consumers, but is often abused to get past safety protocols. An overhaul of scam controls for popular software suites will help everyone that surfs the web.
3. New Hardware
Consumer level hardware will see its biggest change with security systems that better integrate with the home router. This has been a long time coming, as the previous attempts were a bit underwhelming. These new upgrades will require very little user input and will work out of the box with default settings.
4. Better Software
For businesses, the same can be said for coworking management software. Instead of fighting with a company’s default security setup, coworking spaces will be integrated in a much better way. For this particular change, a lot of the lesser-known software is expected to play ‘catch up’ by the end of next year.
5. VM Specific Optimizations
Work from home solutions prefer the safety of VM setups, but often have to deal with huge performance losses. Some of these performance issues are related to the network, while others deal with verification issues from older software. Companies that depend on secure VM portals will possibly migrate to Windows 11, which also means a hardware and software upgrade for all.
6. An Increase in Ransomware Attacks
With a lot of important things going completely digital, ransomware is on the rise. Experts are worried about how complicated things can get for health and government organizations that are compromised. Some countries are already instituting a ban against paying the ransoms, so it puts these services in a peculiar position. Plans are being created to combat this problem, as 2022 will be a battleground.
7. Revaluating Cloud Related Issues
Cloud services grew faster than the industry could optimize. Next year will see some of the oldest problems for cloud services get the fixes they need. This includes speed, security and data encryption enhancements. Out of all the digital services, cloud is expected to benefit the most from 2022.
Protect Your Information
The protection of personal information has never been more important. Guard it like money, and keep layers of protection on it at all times. Information is just as valuable as cash, so don’t make a habit of giving it away.
