Most of us look to the future with optimism. Or better said, we hope for the best. That includes cyber security threats, which means we hope these will be fewer and less vulnerable. Unfortunately, though, odds are that the situation will be quite the opposite.
We don’t mean to stir any panic; we just want to get you prepared for what security specialists believe it will come.
Here are the main 5 predictions for 2018 in terms of digital threats:
- Takeover of chat-bots bound to draw hackers
Chat-bots have become such a thing that numerous businesses have adopted these versatile and useful tools. Think about how many websites have integrated chat-bots to schedule meetings, provide customer support and so on.
Chances are more companies will implement chatbots, but this will create a perfect medium for online hackers. They could impersonate users and compromise the bot services in phishing schemes and social engineering hacks.
- Rise in online travel and booking frauds
The hospitality and tourism industry are one of the largest and richest worldwide.
