Executive
Summary

In this
report, I will be writing about the internet security threats listed under the
“The Threat Landscape in 2014 and Beyond: Symantec and Norton Predictions for
2015, Asia Pacific & Japan”

Over the
years the battle between those wanting to create new threats and exploit
vulnerabilities and those that want to protect against them are very likely to
intensify. Growth in the Internet of Things also means people will be more
connected—and with this connectivity comes the potential for even more security
risks.

Will the
Internet of Things invite a whole new wave of security attacks?

The two threats
I have chosen to write about are;

1.                 
Scammers
will continue to run profitable ransomware scams.

Why this is so being attackers
have developed their techniques while enterprises in all sectors have failed to
patch out critical security loopholes. So many businesses are vulnerable because they’ve failed to implement
the necessary security precautions, including offline backups. Everyone moved
away from offline backups with it being slow and such. Nowadays, with cloud and
online backups, people have totally neglected it. Therefore, if your PC is caught,
what other choice do you have but to pay the ransom to get access back to it.

 

2.                 
Distributed
denial-of-service (DDoS) will continue to rise as a threat.
