What do you think will emerge as the technology trend of 2019 and why?
Privileged attack vectors will continue to be the number one root cause of cyberattacks in 2019. This will be the year when organisations come to realise the importance of changing passwords and making them all unique. This trend will impact everything from home electronics to commercial-grade equipment.
What do you currently identify as the major areas of investment in your industry?
Endpoint protection will be the highest investment in cybersecurity. There are a variety of tools that we use to protect endpoints, from mobiles to laptops, both of which are considered the easiest entry point for threat actors today, as captured in the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Report. Organisations will be doubling down on their investments to protect that highest rate of penetration from threat actors in the coming years.
