A Perfect Cybersecurity Storm is Brewing

There’s a storm brewing in cybersecurity that may reshape the priorities of the entire industry over the next couple of years. Four macro-trends coming together at the same time:

1) Use of ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜€ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด now represents the most commonly used attack vectors in successful breaches.

2) ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป is looming if not already upon us. Employees that are laid off, or believe they are at risk, may be more susceptible to threat actors attempting to leverage access.

4) ๐—œ๐—ป๐—ณ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป – the cost of living is spiraling. If offered enough money to keep the heating on through winter, in return for sharing credentials – how many employees would accept?
