7. Business-Process Exploits
As companies undergo digital transformation and automate processes with artificial intelligence and machine learning, new technical and systemic vulnerabilities will emerge, ready to be exploited, says Ed Cabrera, chief cybersecurity officer at Trend Micro. For example, as companies continue to automate, process vulnerabilities around the supply chain will free up opportunities for cybercriminals to make large sums of money, he says. In many ways, the same players, such as nation-state groups and cybercriminal organizations, will be the culprits, but the context will change, Cabrera adds. As legitimate businesses gain access to automated tools, so will the bad guys. Cabrera warns that attackers will continue to innovate, automate, and build more capacity as they collaborate in cybercriminal undergrounds.

Follow through and maintain!
I actually think that a big portion of poses a threat to your company comes from the lack of follow-through from most companies. Just because you've done a good setup, it doesn't mean that you shouldn't try a bit harder to ensure that a certain level of security is maintained. Hackers improve their skills and you should improve your protection against their evolving tactics...

Giving chances to threats
We can never escape the clench of internet threats which are evolving alongside technological advancements. The more resources there are, the more opportunities there would be for threats to make progress. From our end, what we can do that is still within our control is to implement precautionary measures as tight as possible to prevent whatever that stil can be done.

XSS & SMCI
XSS attacks have long been popular, so it only makes sense that Layer 7 attacks are on the rise.

As for supply-chain attacks? Well, just ask Supermicro. Even the allegation based on anonymous sourcing is enough to sink your company's stock!
