Topic: What Is the Future of Cybersecurity?
With the increasing integration of digital technology into daily life, cyberthreats have become far more prevalent. Advanced cyberattacks are on the rise as organizations rush to incorporate innovative technologies into their business agendas and are thus exposed to new vulnerabilities. As attack vectors and methods become more complex and sophisticated, the scope of cybersecurity is also bound to evolve.
Cybersecurity is no longer just a problem for IT departments; it is now a priority concern for many leaders across industries. In this webinar, a panel of experts will shed light on what cybersecurity means today and how emerging technologies—including artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT)—will impact the future of cybersecurity.
- How emerging attack vectors are influencing the cyberthreat landscape
- The anticipated role of automation and AI in both assisting and mitigating cyberattacks
- Cloud environments as the new digital battlefront
- The impact of imminent IoT upscaling on cybersecurity
- How and why the supply chain is projected to become a prime target for malicious actors
- How users are becoming their own passwords through biometric identification
