Emerging technologies are popping up everywhere. With the evolution of artificial intelligence, deep learning, Internet of Things (IoT), etc., there are new security concerns. The risks posed by emerging technologies are pervasive, according to a new report that warns that organizations need to be aware of where the security threats could come from in 2020 and beyond, and take steps to protect themselves. This serious information came to us from IT Wire in their article, “Warning: Security risks from emerging technologies remain ‘pervasive’ and serious as ever.

Ransomware attacks are not new, but they are getting smarter. This is made easier as company continue to integrate IoT technologies across their operations. Cities are implementing smart solutions but may not be ready to address the subsequent increased security risk.

The ongoing digitization is transforming how society functions in both good and bad ways. People are more aware of their rights and demand better protection of their data. However, the technologies themselves are leaving doors open to cyber criminals.
