Cybersecurity Predictions for 2016

March 15th, 2016

Around this same time each year, technology experts and analysts issue their thoughts on what the coming year will bring. In December 2014, experts predicted the Internet of Things would explode in 2015, software automation would replace human beings with robots, and employees would be required to wear smart devices that tracked their health and movements throughout the day. Obviously, not all of those things happened.

I like to take a more practical approach to anticipating what’s next in security and Cloud technology. We all know that cloud computing has become more widely accepted in the enterprise network. In 2016, we will see more businesses of all sizes turn to the benefits of the Cloud to solve ongoing problems, such as protecting the distributed network from hackers and navigating the IT security workforce shortage.
