These are the trends in cybersecurity for 2022

In the past year, the number of cyber attacks rose to a record high, with 600 companies affected every week in Belgium. That’s an increase of no less than 66 percent compared to 2020.

According to Check Point’s Cyber-security predictions report, the trend will continue into 2022. According to the report, fake news and disinformation will continue to cause damage. The number of attacks on supply chains will further increase, as will the amount of data breaches. The creativity of hackers is increasing. They try, among other things, to bypass cyber security in order to steal bitcoins and altcoins. Cybercriminals are also increasingly targeting mobile devices and using deep-fake technology as a weapon to mislead groups and opinions.

The report also sees continued growth in malware, with cybercriminals targeting companies that can pay ransoms.
