Future Threats – the Security Challenges in the Digital Age

Filed under: Uncategorized — lenand @ 1:15 pm

We are facing an overwhelming increase in security threats. The scale and sophistication of attack are increasing and the range of motivations of attackers is increasing.  Organised crime and nation state offensive capability have increasing access to talent. Many vendors and IT security departments are hard pressed to stay on top of what is happening today, let alone worry about tomorrow.  Technology continues to develop at a breakneck pace with security often remaining an afterthought.

  • What are the technology trends and the potential threats that we need to pay attention to?
  • Which of them should we be concerned about?
  • Which are harmless?
  • How do we get a sense of balance as to where we should focus our energy?

These are all questions posed by BCS Security Community of Expertise.  They aim to produce a structured roadmap of topics for future detailed discussion.

Your thoughts are welcome.
