Top 5 Security Predictions for 2013 from ISF

As 2012 draws to an end, security solutions providers are rushing the forecast of the security threats that will have the most impact next year. The Information Security Forum (ISF), a leading organization on information risk management and cyber security, is one of them.

According to the ISF, there are five major threats that will be most prevalent in 2013: cyber security, big data, data security in the cloud, supply chain security, and consumerization.

Experts believe that, in 2013, anyone whose intellectual property can be used for profit or as a vantage point can become a target of cyber espionage. Governments should seriously start focusing on the protection of critical infrastructure, and they should even prepare for the eventuality of a full telecommunications blackout.
