Security Concerns and Cybersecurity Trends to Expect in 2021
Reduce Concerns and Risk with Hikvision Recommendations to Boost Your Home Security
Hikvision wrote several blogs about how the pandemic fueled a shift to remote work and an uptick in cyberattacks during 2020. The Security magazine story, “Cybersecurity in 2021—what can we expect?,” covers trends that may impact security concerns and cybersecurity in 2021.
Cybercriminals sought to take advantage of people’s coronavirus fears and the growth in remote workers, leading to a significant increase in phishing, ransomware and other cyberattacks. The article predicts that this trend will continue: “In 2021, we can expect cybercriminals to finetune their attack strategies and adapt to the ‘work-from-home economy,’ pursuing remote workers even more so than in 2020.”
As home remains a workplace, the author of the article expects that cyber attackers will target home machines that can be used to exploit corporate devices. As a result, VPNs may decline as the trusted solution to protect networks. It is also likely that demand will increase for more sophisticated cybersecurity solutions, such as web-filtering (prevents viewers from loading certain websites), intrusion detection, and endpoint protection.
The story’s cybersecurity predictions encompass potential breaches in the healthcare sector and the growth in ransomware attacks and techniques. And phishing attacks on individuals and businesses will continue.
While many continue to work from home, tips to prevent security concerns can be helpful. Hikvision posted a blog about securing your home network with recommendations to boost your home security. Visit the link to read about how to conduct firmware updates and more.
