2019 Threat Predictions
Will next year mark the start of a cyber security apocalypse that spells disaster for the Internet, or will network defenders win out against hackers, enjoying smooth digital sailing all year? To find out what the WatchGuard Threat Labs team thinks, join Marc Laliberte and Corey Nachreiner, the hosts of The 443 Podcast, to hear our security predictions for 2019.
Every year, the WatchGuard Threat Lab team imagines what the threat landscape might look like the following year. Though these predictions offer a fun way to talk about the future threat landscape, they’re based on serious real-world trends that all IT and security practitioners should know about. Whether or not any of our eight predictions come true, this session will inform you about the latest cyber-attack trends and corresponding tips and defense strategies to avoid them. This year, the team went a little dystopian with our cyber security predictions, imaging a bleak future if we don’t start winning the cyber security war. However, the goal of this presentation is to spread the awareness necessary to ensure these dark predictions don’t come true. We hope you join us for and interesting, fun, and educational dive into the future of cyber security.
