A surge in the development of software by malicious developers in languages such as Go, Yellow, and Swift is projected. This trend is attributed to the superior development experience, advanced low-level capabilities, extensive standard library support, and seamless integration with third-party resources offered by these languages. Supply chain attacks on software package managers are anticipated as a method to compromise developers.

Stability in prices is foreseen due to the rise in security insurance. With a growing demand from customers for comprehensive risk management and threat intelligence solutions within their security operations, Google Cloud also envisions a heightened consolidation of Security Operations (SecOps).
