Speaking of a Hydra of risk, the Information Security Forum just announced its top information security threats for 2019. The ISF Top 4 cyber threats for 2019 include:

  1. The Increased Sophistication of Cybercrime and Ransomware
    “Criminal organizations will continue their ongoing development and become increasingly more sophisticated. Some organizations will have roots in existing criminal structures, while others will emerge focused purely on cybercrime.”
  2. The Impact of Legislation
    “National and regional legislators and regulators that are already trying to keep pace with existing developments will fall even further behind the needs of a world eagerly grasping revolutionary technologies.”
  3. Smart Devices Challenge Data Integrity
    “It will be problematic for organizations to know what information is leaving their networks or what is being secretly captured and transmitted by devices such as smartphones, smart TVs or conference phones. When breaches occur, or transparency violations are revealed, organizations will be held liable by regulators and customers for inadequate data protection.
  4. The Myth of Supply Chain Assurance
    “In 2019, organizations will discover that assuring the security of their supply chain is a lost cause. Instead, it is time to refocus on managing their key data and understanding where and how it has been shared across multiple channels and boundaries, irrespective of supply chain provider.  This will cause many organizations to refocus on the traditional confidentiality and integrity components of the information security mix, placing an additional burden on already overstretched security departments.”
