Why Cyber Security Trends Matter

Cybersecurity is a growing, dynamic field. Even six months ago, the outlook was different. New vendors appear in the market. New threats emerge. Geopolitical concerns evolve over time. For this reason, to stay well-informed, it’s necessary to keep up with cyber security trends.

For example, a few years ago, most people—even in the industry—probably didn’t think much about the security of connected vehicles. Now, automotive cybersecurity is a multi-million dollar category. Venture money is pouring in. New technological solutions are coming online to defend cars and trucks from cyberattack, GPS spoofing and digitally-based theft.

Or, consider the issue of quantum computing. Until pretty recently, quantum computing was one of those subjects that drew interest and excitement, but few firm productions. It was coming, maybe in the next decade or perhaps the next century. Then, suddenly, it’s on the verge of happening, for real. The breakthroughs are causing a news trend related to the breakdown of traditional cryptography.

Cyber security trends also reveal themselves to be relevant in subjects like regular encryption. For example, KeyFactor recently revealed that it has detected vulnerabilities in over a quarter of a million RSA keys.

The challenge with cyber security trends, however, has to do with the volume of news. Every day, there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of articles and press releases coming out that relate to cyber security trending topics. How can you keep up with them? That is one of the purposes of this site.

We review the industry news for you and post our selections of the most relevant cyber trends for your consumption. We drink from the firehose so you don’t have to. We cover trends in AI in cybersecurity, ransomware, phishing, privacy, threats, financial services cyber risks, cloud security, endpoint security, government cybersecurity healthcare security, industrial and IoT cyber trends and more.
