This chapter considers characteristics of cyberthreats which businesses are likely to face in the future from traditional phishing to quantum computing attacks. By drawing a parallel between creative industries and cybercrime, we analyze how cybersecurity threats, vulnerabilities, and risks will change in the near as well as in the distant future. Implications of these changes for business cyberdefense strategy are also discussed.
