From continued ramifications of the pandemic and the increasing sophistication and frequency in cyber attacks, the past year was truly one for the record books. We look at the 5 most likely security predictions for 2022.

Ransomware gangs have become bolder than ever before and attackers continue to target the industries where they can make the most impact. 2021 even witnessed the first death attributed to ransomware – a worst case scenario that can and must be prevented in the coming year.
