New ransomware variants, more sophisticated phishing techniques, and more dangerous exploit kit delivery systems will almost certainly appear as will new threat vectors that are not covered in the Malwarebytes report.

The good news is that almost every consumer and corporation can do more than they’re already doing to increase their level of internet security.
