Technology Industry Predictions for 2022: From Cybersecurity to WFH

  • 5 mths ago

Well, that was an interesting year. Between the continued impact of the pandemic on workforces, supply chain issues, and headline-grabbing cybersecurity attacks, 2021 was a year to remember—or maybe to forget.

As we look ahead to 2022, CompTIA asked representatives from its membership communities and Industry Advisory Councils for their predictions for 2022. As thought leaders from around the IT industry, their collective insights include issues such as cybersecurity, WFH, government regulations, and more. Here’s what they had to say:

MSP Insurance Will Become Necessary

“I predict cybersecurity insurance carriers will legislate a security floor for managed IT service providers and their customers. Ransomware is evading law enforcement as it is difficult ‘follow the money’ with cryptocurrency and the insurance companies find themselves easy targets to payout. By tightening the requirements, they will protect themselves from liability, in turn, force best practice on our industry.” – Dan Shapero, president of TeamLogicIT

WFH Is Here to Stay—But Needs Better Security

“Next year, we will see companies finally realize (or admit) that hybrid and work from anywhere is a permanent fixture in their business. They’ll be receptive to security that doesn’t rely on network devices or VPNs but technology like zero trust, software defined perimeter (SDP), SDWAN, etc. will become even more competitive and bring the market price down to the SMB.” – Jonathan Blakey, vice president of technology at Technology Assurance Group

Cyber-Proficient MSPs Will Gain an Advantage

“Next year we will see security incident response continue to be a need across the IT channel. MSPs who take a serious look at the cyber threat landscape will not only re-evaluate their current security framework but will recognize the necessity to continue adding to this security framework. MSPs who can profitably bundle these additional security services will not only continue scaling, but most importantly maintain the integrity and security of their customer’s networks.” – Hannah O’Donnell, director of sales, Collabrance
