We are going to say goodbye to 2017. What is your expectation in the new year? Cyber World activities especially cyber attacks looks intensive this year. Perhaps we cannot imagine ransomware threat which contain powerful destruction power last decade.The crypto worm (WANNACRY) break the Cyber incident world records which suspended huge volume of workstations and servers operations in the world on May 2017. A shock to the world that the only way to recover your system or data is pay the ransom. Apart from that an alert to the business world is that how does the open source software provides the IT security assurance to the company. The data breach incident occurred in Equifix was awaken everybody. However the data breach incidents continuous exposed to the world caused by misconfiguration instead of vulnerabilities. It such a way discredit the cloud services provider. On the banking environment, the ATM malwares are wreak havoc. A speculation by expert that DDOS attack will be replaced by ransomware. It looks that DDOS looks running strong this year. My opinion is that application security will be the focus of IT people next year. By the way, I wish you Happy New Year.
