-Cybercrimes: given the turnaround that the world is giving in a more digital world, they will tend to increase. Data breaches, frauds, terrorist financing, money laundering, harassment, corruption...will be increasingly done in the digital world. Crimes will tend to be more international and cooperation between governments and companies will be indispensable in order to stop them. The cornerstone of protection for all of us will be to be trained on these issues in order to determine how vulnerable we are and prevent them.
-Greater impact on the environment: if last year nature showed us the effects of global warming and pollution, this year the effects will be greater. This will cause greater migration of people to other countries, shortage or price increase of some resources, which will lead to higher prices of products. At the same time, companies will have to adjust to new environmental regulations, adjust processes and become more aware of their corporate responsibility towards the environment.
-More activism by society: social networks have boosted people's voice. Technology has helped expose crimes in real time; either with a video or photo. Uploading them to social networks makes it spread more quickly and has more coverage. And in turn, more pressure is generated, more demand for a solution. This will make both governments and companies take more care of their actions because they will be more exposed to reputational risk.
-Employees: companies will tend to focus much more on teamwork and those employees who are proactive will excel. The proactivity will have 2 pillars: that it is done with knowledge and experience.
2020 will be a challenge for everyone: we’ll tend to become more aware of our role and the impact that our actions are producing in the world. And hopefully, we'll rectify strategies and attitudes to do the best for everyone.
