In this week's Risk & Repeat podcast, SearchSecurity editors offer their cybersecurity predictions for 2018, including forecasts for cryptojacking, DDoS attacks and other threats.

As 2017 comes to a close after a tumultuous and eventful year, SearchSecurity editors stare into their crystal balls for some cybersecurity predictions for 2018.

In this episode of the Risk & Repeat podcast, SearchSecurity editors Rob Wright and Peter Loshin discuss their expectations for next year. Their cybersecurity predictions for 2018 include forecasts for more sophisticated cryptojacking campaigns and big swings for the value of bitcoin, the potential for data breach notification legislation to be passed by Congress, severe penalties for a major American company that violates the European Union's General Data Protection Rule and even more potent DDoS attacks generated by threats like the Mirai botnet.

In addition, they address some pressing questions for the security industry, such as: Will an arrest or indictment be made in the case of the Shadow Brokers? When will the final specification of TLS 1.3 arrive? Will we finally find out who the creator of bitcoin is?
