2017 has been the year of ransomware. The global reach of WannaCry had a devastating impact. It’s presence in news outlets around the world made it so that companies and home users everywhere finally began to pay attention to the importance of cybersecurity.

We have already seen a few cases this year, but next year malwareless attacks will cement itself as a definitive trend to watch out for.
