How To Get Cybersecurity In Future

Cybercriminal has reached the point where there are more cybercrimes than physical crimes. Every day, thousands of small businesses are targeted and attacked only because they are not cyber protected. Most people underestimate the power of cyber security, which is why they choose not to protect their website and their business. Unfortunately for them, this is what makes them an easy target for cybercriminal. But, future smiles at us, with new technologies being around the corner. There are plenty of predictions for 2016, as well as the upcoming years, yet most of these predictions have one thing in common – all bets are placed on humans and machines working symbiotically. Here are a few things that will see change in the upcoming year/s.

Breach Prevention

While the cyber security is rapidly evolving, tools are becoming more sophisticated and more complex to use, and launching a cyber-attack has never been easier. Every year, millions of companies are being compromised and classified data being stolen. Companies are losing millions of dollars, and their business is getting disrupted. According to a survey done in 2015, most companies are spending their money on cyber security. However, there is a glimpse of hope. By the year 2020, cyber security will evolve to the point where there will be no possibilities of breach or cyber-attack. This new cyber shield will in the beginning be available only to those who can afford it, but will later on develop and be offered to all businesses, whether large or small.

Cybersecurity Education Will Spread

It is one thing having a small business and being familiar with a thing called cybercriminal, but it a whole new level learning about how to prevent it and stop it from occurring at your doors. In 2017, world’s leading cyber security organizations will start educating people about cyber security and its basics, and will hold conferences to improve the skills of current professionals. The problem gets way smaller once you learn its roots and how to deal with it. These conferences will offer all delegates the ability to learn from the world’s leading programmers and designers.

Improving Security on File Transfer

Since most of the information targeted is data, in the future we will see an increase in protection related to online file transfer. Clouds will gain additional security and better and improved software, and all serious platforms and social networks will have filters which will immediately recognize and remove any malicious software or information. Emails will integrate new protection systems and software, and the spam folder will become bigger and bigger. Current goal is to maximize security around file transfer, and once that is done, it will be much easier for people all over the world to send and receive important information without having to worry about their transfer being compromised.

A sea of Smartphones

Another important thing concerning the data usage is the ever growing usage of cell phones. It is estimated that by the year 2020, 80% of the world’s internet usage will come from cell phones. As the world population increases, there is no age limit at which a child gets his first smartphone. The average year is usually around 4-7, especially with rich parents. Poor countries around the world are being focused on, and soon they will also have full internet access and smartphones at hand. Having this in mind, global security leaders are trying to create new software that will protect all smartphones from cyber-attacks while connecting to a local network or Wi-Fi. Once this is achieved, the level of cybercrime will drastically decline

Unification of Sectors

Once the government and the private sector join, we will see changes in the field of cybercriminal. People will realize that tech is not something you can choose to have, and will realize that it is a necessity which provides both Internet and secures your business. Once the problem is identified and the awareness rose, all we can hope for is that the government and the private sector will find it in their power to work together and eliminate the threat of cybercriminal.

Future holds many uncertain things; however cybercrime is not one of them. It is only a matter of time before software becomes impossible to breach, and before we are able to conduct online businesses without the fear of pirates lurking behind every hyperlink or download.
