Top 5 Security Predictions for 2013 from Symantec

Quote:
With this year quickly coming to an end, it’s time for us at Symantec to publish our predictions on what we expect will happen in the world of cybersecurity for the coming year.

Most of us at Symantec tend to be fact-based, data-driven individuals. However, predicting the future always involves a bit of speculation. To derive our predictions for 2013, we began by talking to hundreds of security experts at Symantec to gather their thoughts and ideas. Then, we peer-reviewed these ideas, argued a lot, and boiled it all down to a handful of predictions that we felt would provide real insight into where we believe the threat landscape is going.

While these predictions are based on what we see today, they also reflect where we think things are going based on our years of expertise, our understanding of threat evolution, and our experience in previous cybersecurity trends.

We're seeing more of the Cyberwarfare already and that can only increase.

I occasionally use mobile banking. My financial institute uses triple authentication. I use a VPN. I have updated security features. I log into my bank directly. I don't log in through social media links. I have better security using mobile banking than I do at a restaurant when I hand over my credit card to some unknown waiter.

I resent you calling me a moron.

Online banking is almost as safe as going to the bank. As marsmimar said, you think nothing of handing your CC to a waitress who goes away with it , then comes back. I have security, keyscrambler, and SSL. I don't hesitate to do my banking online. A Guy

Besides the point about cyber warfare, the remaining 4 points can be addressed by the users simply becoming smarter about what they do.

As always.

So... same old stuff, everything is essentially status quo and we're just reading stuff that's already been written in different terms year after year. The real problem is that the average Joe who uses computers isn't informed, refuses to be informed, doesn't care, and comes crying when they inevitably trip across the true evils of the internet. Those of us who know better try to enlighten, but well... yeah. ┐( ̄ー ̄)┌

As long as you don't visit strange websites, open phishing e-mails and start typing your bank details into Facebook/Twitter then you already have decreased your chances of malware infection and theft significantly.

I use three different kinds of protection on my computer, in addition, to the Windows Firewall which I never change the settings for.

I think general consumers just need to have more common sense and be aware of some of the methods these cyber-criminals attempt to use; as Arthur said, the average PC consumer doesn't care to listen to what the experts have to say.
