"By 2030, connectivity will impact every aspect of daily life, on both the physical and psychological levels.
Malicious threat actors will evolve to use and abuse technological innovation – as they always do.
Among the predictions are:
- AI tools democratize cybercrime on a whole new scale to individuals with no technical skill
- Attacks cause chaos with supply chains and physical harm to humans through their cyber-implants
- Social engineering and misinformation become more visceral and harder to ignore when delivered via ubiquitous Heads Up Displays (HUDs)
- Massive Internet of Things (MIoT) environments attract sabotage and extortion attacks targeting manufacturing, logistics, transportation, healthcare, education, retail, and the home environment
- AI-powered obfuscation makes attribution virtually impossible, pushing the security industry's focus towards incident response and Identity & Access Management (IAM) at the edge
- 5G and 6G connectivity everywhere drive more sophisticated and precise attacks
- "Everything as a Service" turns cloud providers into hugely lucrative targets for cyber-attackers
- Grey markets emerge for those that want tools to confound workplace monitoring
- Techno-nationalism becomes a key geo-strategic tool of some of the world's most powerful nations, with the gulf between them and the "have-nots" widening further
Project 2030 is not a definitive vision of what will be, but a thought-provoking take on what could be — detailing a future that is plausible based on current technology and trends."
