    • #55925

      The future of cyber security is tightly connected with the future of IT. As technology grows, cyber attacks growing up at a rap[id speed. And for that, cyber security is a must need thing. Our personal lives will be reliant on virtual assistants, and IoT connected devices will be part of almost every function of our daily lives. The complexity and connectivity of these interconnected systems directly affect their level of vulnerability.
      In the coming years, nation supported organization will continue to develop cyber-defense and offense technology. Many cyber-attacks are run automatically by ‘bots’ that scan the entire network and find the weakest spot, so we won’t need to look like an ‘attractive target’. New profession and domain expertise will be formed. Large corporations will need to guard their data on their own servers. We can have the most secure data center but if any info will leak throughout the device, we are just as vulnerable.
