Over the past few weeks, dozens of people have reached out to Jon Oltsik, an ESG senior principal analyst and the founder of the firm’s cybersecurity service, with their cybersecurity predictions for 2018. Some prophecies are fairly obvious (ransomware will continue in 2018), while at the other extreme, some people are pushing doomsday forecasts aimed at garnering press hits (i.e. the U.S. will suffer a cyber attack in 2018 that knocks out the power grid for a substantial amount of time). In response, Jon Oltsik has made a few predictions of his own that fall between these extremes.
