The future of cybersecurity is exciting and terrifying at the same time. This Forbes.com articles highlights three emerging trends in cybersecurity:

  1. The sheer size of the IoT provides for a massive attack ‘surface’ that is almost impossible to protect. Artificial Intelligence may be one tool that is deployed to protect the IoT.
  2. Ransowear will become the cyber weapon of choice to defraud individuals and companies. It is financially attractive to cyberterrorists and in the future they will target high-value but poorly-protected institutions such as health care and education, which can’t afford to be taken offline.
  3. Threats against critical infrastructure, such as electricity, supply chain, oil and gas are on the rise. AI and predictive analytics are also the tools of choice to try and mitigate these threats.
