  2. Increased cyber activity will translate to better, bigger, and more successful hacking tools and attempts.
  3. Exploit kits will target Android, as mobile vulnerabilities play a bigger role in device infection.
  4. Targeted attacks will become as prevalent as cybercrime.
  5. New mobile payment methods will introduce new threats.
  6. We will see more attempts to exploit vulnerabilities in open source apps.
  7. Technological diversity will save IoE/IoT devices from mass attacks but the same won’t be true for the data they process.
  8. More severe online banking and other financially motivated threats will surface.
