Expect to see more data breaches, attacks on critical infrastructure in the cloud, and more research into vulnerabilities into cloud computing in 2019, according to studies on upcoming threats in the new year. With increasing adoption and more use cases, cloud computing offers organizations many benefits–but also becomes a bigger target for attackers. The “Mapping the Future” report from cybersecurity firm Trend Micro suggests that 2019 will see more data breaches against organizations due to poorly configured cloud migrations. “Transitioning on-premise or private cloud data to a cloud service provider can open up the enterprise to security risks unless the enterprise has a good handle on what exactly is happening to its data,” the report states. To counter this threat, the report suggests thorough understanding of access policies for cloud storage buckets.
