Important Trends Identified:
- Trend 2 starts by describing the shift in ransomware toward targeting enterprises and whole companies rather than just individuals. Many corporations have physical and digital infrastructure that is at heavy risk, and like in the Colonial Pipeline attack in which ransomware caused a whole pipeline to be shut down, these companies need to heavily invest in cybersecurity.
- Trend 4 explains that there is an increasing trend in private investment in cybersecurity, like in the areas of cloud adoption and remote work, in order to keep a company’s intellectual property safe.
- Trend 7, arguably the most important trend, describes the “shift left” that is happening among cybersecurity software development, in which more security concerns are addressed in the earlier stages of development.
