Top Cybersecurity Trends to Watch out for in 2022
Modern vehicles are outfitted with automated software that provides seamless connectivity for drivers in areas such as engine timing, cruise control, door lock, airbags, and advanced driver assistance systems.
Fremont, CA: With the Digital Revolution sweeping the globe, all businesses, large and small, corporates, organizations, and even governments are relying on computerized systems to manage their day-to-day operations, making cybersecurity a top priority to protect data from various online attacks or unauthorized access. As news of data breaches, ransomware, and hacks become the norm, continuous technological change implies a parallel shift in cybersecurity trends. Here are the top 2022 cybersecurity trends.
Increase in Automotive Hacking
Modern vehicles are outfitted with automated software that provides seamless connectivity for drivers in areas such as engine timing, cruise control, door lock, airbags, and advanced driver assistance systems. These vehicles communicate using Bluetooth and WiFi technologies, which exposes them to a number of vulnerabilities and threats from hackers. With the increased use of automated vehicles, gaining control of the vehicle or utilizing microphones for eavesdropping is expected to increase in 2022. Self-driving or autonomous vehicles employ an even more complex mechanism that necessitates stringent cybersecurity safeguards.
Potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI)
With AI being introduced in all market segments, this technology, combined with machine learning, has brought about significant changes in cybersecurity. AI has played a critical role in the development of automated security systems, face detection, natural language processing, and automatic threat detection. However, it is also being used to create smart malware and attacks in order to circumvent the most recent security protocols for data control. AI-enabled threat detection systems can predict new attacks and immediately notify administrators of any data breach.
Mobile is the Target
In 2019, cybersecurity trends predicted a significant increase (50 percent) in mobile banking malware or attacks, making our handheld devices a potential target for hackers. Photos, emails, financial transactions, and messages pose a greater risk to individuals. In 2022, a smartphone virus or malware may capture the attention of cybersecurity trends.
