Last month, McAfee Labs released its 2012 threat predictions report, taking its annual stab at predicting the course of our industry in the coming year. The McAfee researchers foresaw several new scenarios and significant evolutions in some of the most established threat vectors, including industrial threats, embedded hardware, hacktivism, virtual currency systems and more.
During this month’s #SecChat, we want to hear from you, the greater security community, to find out what you think will be the most pervasive threats of 2012.
Do you agree that top threats will emerge from industrial vulnerabilities, mobile attacks, or cyberwarfare? Why? Are there scenarios that you don’t expect to materialize in the coming year? Given your predictions, how would you advise businesses to prepare for what 2012 has in store?
Join us next Thursday, 1/19 at 11am PT, by following the #SecChat hashtag and @IntelSec_Biz Twitter feed to share your opinion and discuss how emerging threats will affect information security trends in the coming year.
