Bad actors can be expected to adopt new strategies for the next few quarters: Virsec

GUEST OPINION: According to Virsec Cofounder and CTO Satya Gupta, bad actors can be expected to adopt the following new strategies over the next few quarters.

1. Since bad actors have become cash-rich from the ransom they’ve collected from successful attacks, we can expect them to conduct their business (of writing sophisticated exploits for RCE vulnerabilities) earlier and faster by leveraging even more skilled exploit writers instead of depending on publicly disclosed exploits.

2. Attackers will increasingly infiltrate more COTS applications and Open Source Software and bury backdoors directly in source code. Many small/medium business who don’t have dedicated IT to test code before they deploy will end up suffering more from breaches than larger end-users who practice better cyber hygiene.

3. Most cyber-attacks go from infiltration to the ransom-demand stage over days, during which time-sensitive data is exfiltrated slowly so as to not trigger AI/ML attention. Given international tension and not profit being the motivation, we can expect attacks to target widescale disruption (such as taking critical infrastructure systems offline).

4. Given that more and more enterprise software is being delivered from third parties and over the cloud, sophisticated bad actors will target such cloud providers. We therefore expect to hear of many more breach disclosures in popular SaaS services in the coming times.

INTRODUCING ITWIRE TV

iTWire TV offers a unique value to the Tech Sector by providing a range of video interviews, news, views and reviews, and also provides the opportunity for vendors to promote your company and your marketing messages.

We work with you to develop the message and conduct the interview or product review in a safe and collaborative way. Unlike other Tech YouTube channels, we create a story around your message and post that on the homepage of ITWire, linking to your message.

In addition, your interview post message can be displayed in up to 7 different post displays on our the iTWire.com site to drive traffic and readers to your video content and downloads. This can be a significant Lead Generation opportunity for your business.

We also provide 3 videos in one recording/sitting if you require so that you have a series of videos to promote to your customers. Your sales team can add your emails to sales collateral and to the footer of their sales and marketing emails.

See the latest in Tech News, Views, Interviews, Reviews, Product Promos and Events. Plus funny videos from our readers and customers.
