MIT Technology Review recently predicted that cloud services may be the next target of ransomware attacks, since these are huge stores of valuable data for companies.
They added that smaller cloud providers are likelier targets since bigger companies such as Google, Amazon, and IBM have ample resources and experience to fend off attackers.
MIT also said that cyber attackers may increasingly leverage AI technologies such as machine learning models and neural networks. The prediction is supported by McAfee Labs in their Threat Predictions Report 2018, where they said that attackers may use machine learning to disrupt detection models and exploit new vulnerabilities faster.
