Cyber security news for all


    Control Risks identified the following key global cyber risks in 2020

    The proliferation of a variety of cyber threats will almost certainly result in a high-impact cyberattack on critical infrastructures in 2020. This is one of the main forecasts of 2020 – the global outlook for political and security risks in the coming year from the specialized global risk advice Control Risks.

    In the coming year, cyberattacks will increasingly become the standard retaliation mechanism for strategic conflicts where traditional military acts are out of the question. As a result, we will see a worldwide increase in the number and severity of cyberattacks in 2020. Since many European countries are at the top of the list in Smart Cities, increased connectivity will be one of the main weaknesses of globally networked companies in 2020.

    Cyber ​​Warfare Has Reached Unprecedented Levels

    2020 will be characterized by an unprecedented quality of cyber threats. The increasing penetration of cyberattacks poses an immense threat, especially for critical infrastructure. Western deterrence has failed to stem this development, and attackers are using increasingly tough methods. The United States will not stand idly by to watch this hustle and strike back massively. In areas of conflict of strategic importance where classic military measures are out of the question, these will increasingly be replaced by cyberattacks.

    US Presidential Campaign

    The US presidential election campaign will have a noticeable impact on international politics in 2020. The drama of the election campaign together with the burdens of the impeachment proceedings will be reflected in the US foreign policy.
