Emerging security trends For 2013
The year saw a huge upsurge in the amount of online hacking. Cyber attacks in some form or another were practically a monthly occurrence. In fact, Venture Beat called 2012 a 'big, bad year for online security breaches', citing high-profile companies such as AOL, LinkedIn, Google and Yahoo as falling victim to hacking attacks that have exploited their customers' private information.
This increase in security breaches indicates that all organisations still have a long way to go in safeguarding against traditional and emerging security risks. While it is always difficult to exactly predict upcoming threats, it is clear that 2012's major security issues around mobility, virtualisation and social networking will continue into 2013.
