Major Security Concerns into 2014
Throughout 2013 there were many major security breaches, which involved a significant amount of lost data. Over 552 million identities may have been made vulnerable through these cybercrimes. Targeted attacks also grew; many companies are now concerned that they, too, may become the target of cyber criminals.
The increasing reliance of businesses on mobile platforms may also become detrimental throughout 2014 as mobile platforms are now being targeted for cybercrime as well. Social media accounts are also increasingly becoming access points for cyber criminals and many cyber attackers are taking advantage of increasing unique pathways to information. The Internet of Things has made it easier than ever for cyber attackers to connect with things such as smart appliances or even cars.
