Top 10 Security and Risk Trends for Information
Infrastructure In 2021
Information Infrastructure The information
infrastructure is a global network of people,
groups, organisations, regulations, methods, and
technologies that work together to improve the
creation, production, dissemination,
organisation, storage, retrieval, and
preservation of information and knowledge for
people. The primary goal of this network is to
disseminate knowledge throughout society.
With the digital revolution sweeping the globe,
all businesses, large and small, organisations,
and even governments are relying on computerized
systems to handle their day-to-day operations,
making Cybersecurity a top priority to protect
data from various online threats or data breaches.
Basics of Cyber-Threat Cyber threats led the
global cyber surroundings at the moment. Its
hard to believe that organizations and
individuals could be the victims of this crime.
The truth is that ANYTHING that uses the internet
is vulnerable to a variety of cyber threats. To
the majority of the population, threats are
obnoxious and harmful. People who are infected
with malware risk losing intellectual property,
having their online bank accounts revealed, or
unintentionally spreading more malware to other
computers in their network. A higher level of a
cyber attack can obtain corporate data and
interrupt a countrys critical national
infrastructure. On the FBIs priority list,
Cyber Crime and Terrorism are second only to
Counter-Terrorism and Anti-Intelligence.
  • Common Attack Methods That Are Used
  • The following is a list and brief description of
    cyber-attack methods that will continue to pose a
    serious danger to public and private sector
  • Man-in-the-middle Attack
  • A MitM attack happens when an attacker occurs
    between a clients and a servers interactions.
    While the server believes it is interacting with
    the trusted client, the attacking computer
    changes its IP address for the trustworthy
    client. Some common types of MitM attacks
  • Session Hijacking
  • IP Spoofing
  • Replay attack
DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) A
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack
occurs when a large volume of traffic is sent to
a single device to disrupt the devices normal
operation. DDoS attacks enable attackers to
physically harm their victims rather than steal
their data. These attacks overflow the network
with massive amounts of data, pushing it to its
limits. Malware that Operates Across Multiple
Platforms Now, malware isnt just a problem for
Windows-based computers anymore. With the number
of systems running different operating systems,
cyber attackers are more motivated to create
cross-platform malware.
Malware with Metamorphic and Polymorphic
Properties This type of virus is constantly
updating its code, so each new version is unique
from the old one. Phishing This pattern is
typically operated via email, the attackers send
a bogus email, message, web link, or voice call
in order to obtain our personal information.
Phishing attackers primary goal is to capture
your personal and confidential data, such as
login credentials, card information, and so on.
They may also attempt to install malware on your
Top 10 Security Trends for 2021 As news of data
breaches, ransomware, and cyberattacks becomes
the norm, constant development in technology
requires a matching shift in practices. The
following are the top cybersecurity trends for
2021 that we will go into in detail 1.
Automated Cybercrime The emergence of automotive
cyberattacks will be the first cyber security
trend of 2021. Autonomous software in todays
vehicles provides a smooth connection for drivers
in areas such as cruise control and engine timing
as well as door locks, airbags, and advanced
driver assistance systems. Communication between
these vehicles is done by Bluetooth and WiFi
technologies. This leaves them exposed for attack
by unauthorised users. Even more complex
mechanisms are used in self-driving or autonomous
vehicles, which require severe cybersecurity
2. Improving Cyber Security by Integrating AI
Machine learning and this technology have
transformed cybersecurity. AI has played a
critical role in the development of automated
security systems, speech recognition, face
recognition, and automatic threat detection. Its
also being used to create smart malware and
attacks to get around the most up-to-date data
protection protocols. AI-enabled threat detection
systems can predict new threats and warn users of
any security breaches quickly. 3. The New Target
Is Mobile Mobile banking malware is on the rise,
according to cybersecurity trends. All our
photographs, banking transactions, emails, and
messages pose a greater risk to individuals.
4. Malware in the Cloud is Also a Threat
Nowadays more and more organisations have settled
in the cloud. This means that security measures
must be constantly monitored and updated in order
to prevent data leakage. Although cloud apps are
secure on their end, the user end is still a
major source of mistaken errors, dangerous
software, and phishing assaults. 5. Data Breach
Data will continue to be a top priority for
businesses all over the world. Protecting digital
data is the main objective now, whether for an
individual or organisation. Any minor flaw or bug
in your system browser or software can allow
devices to steal personal information. 6. IoT
with 5G Network 5G and the IoT are the next big
cyber security trends for 2021. This connection
across several devices also introduces them to
outside influence, threats, or an unknown
software bug that could damage their privacy. As
the 5G network develops, we may be subjected to
an increasing number of unknown network threats.
7. Embedding and Automation In todays busy work
environment, experts and engineers are under
pressure to provide rapid and efficient
solutions, making automation more vital than
ever. For a more secure product in every aspect,
security measurements are integrated into the
agile approach. Due to the difficulty of securing
large and sophisticated online applications, both
automation and cyber security are essential
concepts in the software development process. 8.
Ransomware with a Specific Target Ransomware is
another big cybersecurity threat that we tend to
overlook. To run their businesses, many companies
in wealthy nations rely substantially on
specialised software. Ransomware has more
specific targets, yet it can also affect
governments and large organisations.
9. National Cyber Warfare The conflict between
the United States and Iran or Chinese players
often makes headlines around the world, even
though the attacks are rare. As a result of the
fact that there will be over 70 elections this
year, criminal activity will increase throughout
this time period. 10. The Threat of Insiders
One of the most common causes of data breaches is
human mistakes. A single bad day or purposeful
loophole can bring a whole organisation down,
resulting in millions of dollars in stolen
data. Cybersecurity with InfosecTrainInfosecTrai
