But what does an increasingly agile and hyper-connected world mean for an organization’s security? Trend Micro Research predicts the biggest threat and security challenges for the new year, enabling a more resilient, forward-thinking security strategy.

Cybercriminals in the cloud
Although cybercriminals will continue to use tried and true methods, such as phishing emails, unsecured secrets, and exploiting known flaws, they will also explore new technologies like Java, Adobe Flash, and WebLogic to gain access.

Cybercriminals will also mimic the DevSecOps “shift left” approach by going to the source of an enterprise’s infrastructure. We’ll see more malicious actors compromising DevOps tools and pipelines to target supply chains, Kubernetes environments, and infrastructure as code (IaC) deployments.

Since developers’ tokens and passwords hold the key to an organization’s operations, using their credentials helps attackers stay under the radar while penetrating multiple layers of an enterprise’s network.

Surge in supply chain attacks

Supply chain attacks will be especially prevalent, as ongoing economic shortages and disruptions will create opportunities for malicious actors to strong-arm targets for big payouts. Particularly, we predict access-as-a-service (AaaS) brokers will take
