While a large proportion of cybercrime continues to be opportunistic, Sophos is predicting increased availability of malware testing platforms -- some even providing criminals with money-back guarantees -- will make it more likely for malware to slip through traditional business security systems. Sophos predicted enterprises could expect to see an increase in the number of incidents where attackers have gained and sustained surreptitious access to corporate networks.

Other Trends to Watch

Other trends Sophos predicted for the year ahead included more basic Web server mistakes, more irreversible malware and more attacks that place a greater focus on the need for behavioral protection mechanisms as well as system hardening and backup/restore procedures. Also expect to see attack toolkits with premium features, better exploit mitigation, integration, privacy and security challenges.

"Due to an uptick in credential-based extractions, IT professionals will need to pay equal attention to protecting both their computers as well as their Web server environment," the report said.

"With GPS and near field communication (NFC) becoming more integrated into mobile platforms, expect to see a convergence in our digital and physical lives. This trend is identifiable not just for mobile devices, but for computing in general. In the coming year, watch for new examples of attacks built on these technologies."
