Hacking Will Become Influenced by Ideology
2016 will be the year the phrases “corporate homicide” and “drive-by hackings” enter the common lexicon. These will be the types of attacks that are described as politically or ideologically focused—think “V for Vendetta”—where shadowy groups target financial, insurance, government, political, gender and similarly divisive organizations (Planned Parenthood, NRA, etc.). The intent of these hacks will fall into one of three momentous categories: hack for profit, hack for destruction and hack for political momentum. —Art Gilliland, CEO, Skyport Systems
