Stuart Dredge from the Guardian predicts the cyber threats we'll face in 2015 in "How you could become a victim of cybercrime in 2015".

You don't have to be a techie or a nerd to understand the sort of threats he thinks will be likely.

He predicts:
  • Targeted attacks and sophisticated spam
  • Banking and healthcare companies at risk
  • Ransomware on the rise
  • Mobile payments could be hot... for criminals
  • Mobile malware aims at Apple, not just Android
  • Open source code still a target
  • Criminals hiding on the darknet
  • Social media malware and malvertising
  • Internet of Things a rising concern
  • Cyberwar as criminal/state boundaries blur
