Cybersecurity is the protection of internet-connected systems such as hardware, software and data from cyber-threats. The practice is used by individuals and enterprises to protect against unauthorized access to data centers and other computerized systems.
The goal of implementing cybersecurity is to provide a good security posture for computers, servers, networks, mobile devices and the data stored on these devices from attackers with malicious intent. Cyber-attacks can be designed to access, delete, or extort an organization’s or user’s sensitive data; making cybersecurity vital., Medical, government, corporate and financial organizations, may all hold vital personal information on an individual
In today’s digital world where there are more devices than people, the usage of powerful cybersecurity systems is beneficial in order to protect the essential data, devices, networks, and programs.
As the world we live in becomes more digital over time, the attackers enhance more innovation. Therefore, the threats we face may have more serious damage. A good example can be the huge cyber-attack in the city of Baltimore, in May 2019. Hackers had frozen many government computers and demanded $76,000 in bitcoin. The attack had affected the real estate market as suspending real estate transactions. Besides, the city signed a cyber insurance policy for $20M.
Website hacking, stealing a personal identity or information as well as companies’ portfolios and secrets can be some of the threats that the people and organizations will face in the future.
Considering that fact, companies should focus on strengthening and improving their security systems to protect their confidential information and keep the society functional. Furthermore, AI technology continues intensely development and application in the future because of its ability to identify and respond to the threats and block the attack before it spread.
Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
Virtual Reality is a computer-generated simulation of reality that the user accepts as its real environment since Augmented Reality represents the user’s view of real-world by 3D models, videos and superimposed computer images. Through the past years, VR and AR showed notable growth and potential future development. A good example can be the development of wearable spatial computers is Magical Leap 1. It brings the physical and digital worlds together by combining 3D computer-generated imagery with real-world subjects through a head-mounted display.
The healthcare usage of Virtual Reality will increase. It will be used to treat patients with anxiety disorders, phobias and help people with autism to develop communication and social skills.
A super-fast 5G mobile network will give the opportunity to stream VR and AR data from the cloud. The educational experience will be improved as the people who study distantly will have the chance to learn in a cooperative team-based environment.
