The ISF launches its annual Threat Horizon report

By 2021 the world will be heavily digitised. Technology will enable innovative digital- business models and society will be critically dependent on technology to function.  This new hyperconnected digital era will create an impression of stability, security and reliability. However, it will prove to be an illusion that is shattered by new vulnerabilities, relentless attacks and disruptive cyber threats.

The report covers three key themes:

1 – DIGITAL CONNECTIVITY EXPOSES HIDDEN DANGERS:
1.1 5G technologies broaden attack surfaces
1.2 Manipulated machine learning sows confusion
1.3 Parasitic malware feasts on critical infrastructure.

2 – DIGITAL COLD WAR ENGULFS BUSINESS:
2.1 State-backed espionage targets next-gen tech
2.2 Sabotaged cloud services freeze operations
2.3 Drones become both predator and prey

3 – DIGITAL COMPETITORS RIP UP THE RULEBOOK:
3.1 Digital vigilantes weaponise vulnerability disclosure
3.2 Big tech break up fractures business models
3.3 Rushed digital transformations destroy trust
