Tippett identified a number of trends that he expects will enable the improvement in cybersecurity:
- security will be more measured and more scientific; the long-standing 'lack of security data' problem will lessen;
- identity will become ubiquitous and simple for everyone; the use of reputation systems and the large-scale use of end-user network and other reputational data will be coupled with numerous forms of automation that will help users to avoid websites, e-mail and IP addresses with malicious content, or which have been recently involved in malicious activities;
- numerous security services will become part of the cloud;
- prosecution of computer criminals will increase over most of the decade. Better laws, logging and other evidence preservation, forensics capabilities, cooperation between worldwide law enforcement, and stronger, more ubiquitous and diverse electronic identity will all drive more arrests and more jail time for those convicted of cybercrimes.
