PHOENIX, AZ — (Marketwired) — 11/10/16 — , the leading cyber security company dedicated to preventing privilege misuse and stopping unauthorized access, today announced its , along with five technology events to watch for in the . The cyber security threat landscape continuously grows in complexity and scope, leading to new attacks, innovations, regulations and security measures every year. As the Internet of Things continues to change the world and the way people live, it will also continue to open threat possibilities for all connected devices, whether they be consumer products or industrial systems. 2017 will be no different — a year of change, growth, and advancement.

And in the next five years, technological threats and innovation may drive us to a world we scarcely recognize, for good and for bad. Imagine the implications of compromised self-driving cars. Consider embedded identification technology, powered by the human body in which it resides, giving two-factor identification new meaning. Five years could bring the end of privacy laws, operating systems and anti-virus software. Might we even see a video game take down the North Korean regime?

4. Following constant DDoS attacks above the 500GB mark, a new startup that directly attacks and patches botnet systems will launch in an unregulated country, and patch a hundred million hosts.
5. Pressure, typing speed and fingerprints will be used to advance biometric recognition to protect devices from cybercrime.
6. Mobility, cloud deployments and increased regulation will drive innovation in identity verification.
7. Since the government has infiltrated the Tor network, companies will start to setup cross-country file transfer networks, moving toward a fully encrypted, clear text network.
8. A hard stance on outdated software accessing banking systems will knock user acceptance down 40 percent, but increase the purchase of new computers, Chrome books, mobile devices, and tablets that are more secure than older systems.
9. Most attacks will begin with an exploit taking advantage of a known vulnerability where a patch has been readily available.
10. Attacks on cloud platforms, workloads, and enterprise SaaS applications convince organizations to expand their budgets.
