Trend Micro Releases Security Predictions for 2013 & Beyond

Dec 13, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Threats to Android, the Cloud and digital lifestyle devices will make fighting cybercriminals more complex in 2013 than ever before, according a report released today by the global cloud security leader Trend Micro.


"In 2013, people are going to have a harder time managing the security of their devices," said Raimund Genes, CTO, Trend Micro. "Different platforms, operating systems and security models will make it more difficult to protect ourselves than ever before." The Trend report, "Security Threats to Business, the Digital Lifestyle, and the Cloud," outlines the 10 top threats facing business and consumers next year. It is now available for download .

Among its findings: - The most serious threat during 2013 may be malicious and high-risk Android apps . Trend predicts they will reach 1 million in 2013, up from 350,000 at the end of 2012.

- While traditional PC malware may recede a bit next year, threats to devices running the Android operating system will more than replace it.

- The emergence of more digital lifestyle devices means that threats could appear in new and unexpected places, such as television sets and home appliances.

- Africa appears on its way to becoming the next safe harbor for cybercriminals on the run.

Other predictions include: - Slow adoption of Windows 8 by business means consumers will be the leading beneficiaries from its security enhancements during the coming year.

- Cybercriminals will target legitimate cloud services and data breaches will remain a serious threat in 2013, in part because existing security tools do not protect cloud data as well as traditional storage.

- Consumers will increasingly use multiple computing platforms and devices, making securing them a difficult challenge.

- Politically motivated attacks will become more destructive during 2013.

- Conventional malware threats will evolve gradually, with few, if any, significant new attacks. Still, attacks that do occur will become more sophisticated and harder to detect.

- Efforts to address global cybercrime are gaining traction, but will take two or three more years to reach full implementation.

There is, however, hope amid this gloomy forecast. "The good news is that the timing is perfect for security defenders to set new standards and deliver new solutions that will have a disturbing impact on the underground economy," said Genes. If that happens, 2013 may be remembered as a decisive turning point in the war on cybercrime.
