Data breaches, cyberattacks are top global risks alongside natural disasters and climate change
The World Economic Forum (WEF) has released its Global Risks Report for 2019. According to the organization, the number one risk for this year is extreme weather. The second biggest risk has to do with shortcomings in global efforts to address climate-change, while natural disasters clinched the third spot.
Cybersecurity issues were once again given high priority as well, with cyberattacks deemed the fourth biggest risk for 2019, followed by data breaches.
