Cybersecurity Predictions for 2022

January 12, 2022

A post by Brad Redisail on the Techopedia website ( discusses the views of cybersecurity and IT experts on top issues for 2022.

  1. Preventing ransomware should be the #1 objective.
  2. There will be a clear definition of "reasonable security" and the need for risk management services will increase.
  3. Managed service providers will require their clients to use reasonable security measures.
  4. To accommodate hybrid workers, employees will have "touchdown spots" rather than permanent offices. "Hot desking" will allow users to pick any work station and use it. (Multiple users on a device will create security issues that must be addressed.)
  5. The shortage of cybersecurity professionals will increase, and companies will rely more on generalists.
