The list of the biggest dangers to information security are long for 2019, and ever-evolving. A 2019 list developed by the Information Security Forum highlighted ransomware hijacking IoT, premeditated internet outages disrupting trade and privileged insiders being coerced into giving up their companies’ critical data as some of the top threats.
