Recurring guest Richard Henderson (Global Security Strategist for Absolute) and I discuss what we think are the greatest threats to security in 2018. We ponder ransomware, standard threats, cryptocurrencies, and other advanced persistent threats. Richard and I agree that 2018 will be another significant security threat year. One thing to note is that while attackers are more persistent, there are some threats that are actually waning such as certain types of ransomware, viruses, and malware that’s easily stopped by smarter browsers, host-based firewalls, and operating system security. That said, we don’t expect attacks to decrease in 2018.
