Cyber threats have changed significantly during the last several years. Massive information storage and transfer implies expansive new challenges for companies. In this blog, we will talk about different types of threats and how they are changing. We will discuss the emergence of new types of threats and cybersecurity challenges that companies face today.

New working conditions emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic and opened new opportunities for cybercriminals. According to the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity, such threats are ransomware, malware, disinformation and misinformation, cryptojacking, threats against data, availability, and integrity, email-related threats, supply chain threats, and human errors.

So what are the cybersecurity challenges in 2022?

An increase in cyber attacks is no longer a new phenomenon. However, new ways of cyber attacks appear more and more often. Education, health care, and critical infrastructure will remain the primary targets for cybercriminals. This trend will probably continue throughout 2022 and 2023. 

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, hybrid work will become more common and an alternative to office attendance. Thus, cyber attacks have adapted and in turn become a cyber pandemic. Even with the wide adoption of cloud security, there are still a lot of cloud security gaps remaining. Thus, cloud services will remain key targets for cyber attackers.

New trends in cyber security challenges

Supply chain attacks

SolarWinds is a recent example of a supply chain attack. The company was compromised by the Sunburst malware, which impacted 18,000 public and private organisations. Such attacks are potentially profitable for criminals. In 2022 attacks on this sector will continue and likely expand. 

Mobile devices security risks 

By shifting to remote work, companies lost a lot of online security visibility. Employees using their own devices made companies more vulnerable and opened them up to more cyber attacks. As a result, social engineering attacks increased, and will keep on increasing in 2022. 

5G application risks 

5G will increase the speed and responsiveness of digital communication. Although, as with any technological development, it brings new risks as phishing remains one of the major challenges of cyber security.  

Blockchain and cryptocurrency attacks 

Crypto transactions being digital requires cyber security measures. Attacks on these frameworks can compromise customer data and operations. 

Cyber security is an area that requires advanced technologies, the most thorough training of specialists, and the most efficient cooperation between companies and institutions in the digital space. It’s not easy to stay ahead of the ever-growing number of cyber threats, but with the right support and cooperation, we can devise solutions to keep people and businesses safe.
