2018 Threat Predictions
New Devices, New Threats


Please join McAfee leading researchers from McAfee Labs and Office of the CTO as they share threat landscape predictions for 2018. We find ourselves in a highly volatile stage of cybersecurity, with new devices, new risks, and new threats appearing every day. In this webcast, Raj Samani, Lynda Grindstaff, and Vincent Weafer offer their views on a wide range of threats, including machine learning, ransomware, serverless apps, and privacy issues.

They will discuss five key trends to watch in 2018
  • McAfee Labs predicts an adversarial machine learning “arms race” between attackers and defenders
  • Ransomware will evolve from traditional PC extortion to IoT, high net-worth users, and corporate disruption
  • Serverless apps will create attack opportunities targeting privileges, app dependencies, and data transfers
  • Connected home devices will surrender consumer privacy to corporate marketers
