SiteLock’s Top Five Cybersecurity Predictions For 2020

It’s safe to say that the volume and magnitude of high-profile data breaches and ransomware attacks that punctuated 2019 really kept the cybersecurity industry on its toes. Data breaches stole numerous headlines this year, including the notable Capital One breach that exposed more than 100 million customers’ accounts. In fact, New Orleans even declared a state of emergency due to the large number of public services that were directly impacted by this ransomware attack. In comparison to last year, research shows that data breaches have increased by 54% — making 2019 “the worst year on record” for data breaches. 

According to SiteLock researchers and cybersecurity experts, the threat landscape will only continue to grow in 2020 and will likely bring even more new challenges with it. We’ve analyzed the current state of the industry and packaged up our top five cybersecurity predictions for 2020.

What Is Malvertising and How Do You Prevent It?

Did you know that a malicious advertisement could look exactly the same as a legitimate one?

Malware is constantly changing as cybercriminals look for new methods to wreak havoc on website owners and visitors. One of their main tactics is malvertising — tricking visitors into downloading malware disguised as online ads — which can cause problems for both your business and customers. Cybercriminals carry out malvertising cyberattacks in two ways: They either inject malicious code into legitimate digital ads, or they create fake ads and distribute them through ad networks.

It’s easy for an end-user to fall victim to a malvertising attack. Because these devious ads have the same look and feel as legitimate ones, the illicit ads can slip by security checks during the approval process. Once someone clicks the infected ad, it starts a malicious download process and ultimately infects the user’s computer.

Where do the 2020 Candidates Stand on Cybersecurity Awareness?

The ugly news about Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election forced the issue of cybersecurity into the political spotlight in 2016. Since this catalytic event, political leaders have grappled with cybersecurity awareness on a global stage — and not all have done so gracefully.

Bad actors, whether politically motivated or not, grow increasingly sophisticated as our world becomes more rooted in technology. However, it appears lawmakers aren’t prepared for this reality. One example: too many are in the dark about website encryption — 61% of world politicians’ websites aren’t HTTPS-secured.
