The world is now heavily digitised. Technology enables innovative digital business models and society is now critically dependent on technology to function. This new hyperconnected digital era will create an impression of stability, security and reliability. However, it will prove to be an illusion that is shattered by new vulnerabilities, relentless attacks and disruptive cyber threats.
Threat Horizon 2021 provides business leaders with insight into the profound changes expected and details of key actions they should consider now. The report presents nine major threats organisations can expect to face, grouped under the following themes:
- DIGITAL CONNECTIVITY EXPOSES HIDDEN DANGERS
- DIGITAL COLD WAR ENGULFS BUSINESS
- DIGITAL COMPETITORS RIP UP THE RULEBOOK
The Threat Horizon Report – A brief history
The Information Security Forum’s Threat Horizon Report, released annually, has actually predicted these risks:
- Threat Horizon 2019 suggested that the blockchain would be under attack, subverted to commit fraud and money laundering
- Threat Horizon 2020 warned that the new biometric and facial recognition systems were more error-prone, and easier to trick, than anyone realized
- The 2021 Threat Horizon points out malicious drones as a risk for target attacks
“The value of the ISF Threat Horizon series lies in discussing upcoming scenarios, planning for those scenarios and, most importantly, engaging cross-organization teams in discussing the response playbook.” Steve Durbin, CEO, ISF
