Emerging Tactics and Trends – What Is Coming?
As with anything else in technology, Moore's law applies. While Moore's law was about the number of transistors in integrated circuits doubling, in most technology circles this reference simply means that things get exponentially faster at a factor that doubles with each innovation. In cyber security this is just as true and, unfortunately, it is much more dangerous. Because of the nature and the speed with which technology and its many uses are evolving, and the never-ending consumer consumption of technology-related assets, the danger in this space also is only set to increase.
In this chapter, we will discuss some of the new and more innovative threat vectors that are known today. We will delve into the realities and truths around what AI is in this market space and vector in on how technologies related therein might be leveraged for malicious purposes.
A key takeaway from this chapter is an...
