Episode 34: Predicting 2021 Cyber Threats

While knowing the cyber threats of today is important, being prepared for the cyber threats of tomorrow is vital. That’s where WatchGuard’s Marc Laliberte and his team come in. Marc joins us on our latest Ping Podcast to discuss WatchGuard’s 2021 Cybersecurity Predictions. He tells us what to look out for, with many attacks focusing on the surge in remote work vulnerabilities. He also tells us why businesses without multifactor authentication (MFA) should expect a breach. In addition, he shares another prediction about potentially dangerous electric car charging stations. Plus, we take a brief look back at the 2020 Cybersecurity Predictions, and see how they were influenced by the coronavirus pandemic.
