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.
