We are heading into an era, unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Digital and physical worlds are on an irreversible collision course. By 2022 organisations are not just going to be newly challenged, but in fact, plunged into crisis as ruthless attackers exploit weaknesses in immature technologies and take advantage of what is really an unprepared workforce. At the same time, natural forces will ravage infrastructure and all of this creates a perfect storm of trouble inside and outside the enterprise.

In this ISF Classics podcast, we are bringing you the first in a series of episodes focusing on Threat Horizon 2022: When Digital and Physical Worlds Collide. ISF Chief Executive, Steve Durbin and ISF podcast host Tavia Gilbert will be discussing the broad threat overview before diving more deeply into a couple of areas that demand more attention.

So the real challenge I think that we have to face up to here is that organisations are simply not going to be able to disentangle the digital from the physical. And they will be forced to respond to this growing blend of threats from new technologies, people, and indeed nature.
