In the future, it is expected that the industry will be marked with multiple technologies. These technologies will play a crucial role in the improvement of the levels of efficiency that companies exhibit. On the other hand, one of the major weaknesses that will likely arise is a threat to the privacy, integrity, and security of data (Sloane, 2018). Through the use of various technologies such as the internet of things, companies will find it hard to protect their data against breaches (Griffy-Brown, Lazarikos & Chun, 2019). Data breaches will be based on the use of the latest technologies to exploit weaknesses found in the various systems. It is, therefore, recommended that companies must adopt a holistic approach in the development of protective, preventive, and reliable mechanisms of ensuring and guaranteeing information security and reduce the risks of data breaches (Ghosh, Mishra & Mishra, 2019). However, with the current trends, it is expected that more breaches will continue to happen, ranging from the use of phishing, hacking, malware, and also but not limited to ransomware.
