    • Mark Ward, Senior research analyst, Information Security Forum
  • Cyber, technology & innovation webinar

In this IIL cyber, technology and innovation webinar, Mark Ward will act as a tour guide to the many cyber and technology-based threats that will trouble organisations over the next three years, looking at developments in AI (artificial intelligence), digital identity, renewable energy and many other topics.

The pandemic has re-made the world in many ways and has given rise to a host of novel technological threats that will plague organisations in the near future.

Drawing on 30 years of research, this looks at the rapidly approaching threat horizon will draw out key trends to identify the particular dangers most likely to emerge by 2023. Example threats include:

  • AI-based malware that can learn the best way to penetrate and de-fraud organisations
  • Digital doppelgangers that take identity theft to a new level
  • Bot-based attacks that pummel websites seeking supplies that scammers can re-sell

Real-world examples will be used in this webinar to anchor the predictions in trends, developments and attack patterns seen today.

By the end of this webinar members would have gained an insight into:

  • The growing sophistication of organised cyber-criminal gangs
