(DigitalInformationWorld) There are certain technologies that are more vulnerable to hacks and in turn – are constantly exploited by the bad actors. This article takes a look at the top seven emerging technologies that are potential threats to the cybersecurity system of today.
1. AI-generated ‘deepfake’ audio and video technology;
2. Quantum computing. The practice of “harvesting” today’s data to secure for the time when quantum computers become available means that the quantum threat is relevant now.
3. 5G networks.
4. The ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT).
5. Artificial intelligence.
6. Supply-chain hacks.
7. Operational functions.
