SAN JOSE, Calif., OCTOBER 27, 2021- McAfee Enterprise and FireEye today released its 2022 Threat Predictions, examining the top cybersecurity threats they predict enterprises will face in 2022. Bad actors have taken note of successful tactics from 2021, including those making headlines tied to ransomware, nation states, social media and the shifting reliance on a remote workforce. We expect them to pivot those into next years' campaigns and grow in sophistication, wielding the potential to wreak more havoc across the globe. Skilled engineers and security architects from the recently combined entity offer a preview of how the threat landscape might look in 2022 and how these new or evolving threats could potentially impact enterprises, countries, and civilians.
"Over this past year, we have seen cybercriminals get smarter and quicker at retooling their tactics to follow new bad actor schemes - from ransomware to nation states - and we don't anticipate that changing in 2022," said Raj Samani, fellow and chief scientist of the combined company. "With the evolving threat landscape and continued impact of the global pandemic, it is crucial that enterprises stay aware of the cybersecurity trends so that they can be proactive and actionable in protecting their information."
