Technologies present high risk in 2017
(Summary from: www.zdnet.com: Which technologies present the most risk in 2017?)
A lot of exciting new technologies are emerging or maturing that will likely play an increasingly important role in our lives and help transform businesses and industries in the coming months and years.
But many of these present potential risks from an information security and safety standpoint.
“Emerging technologies may have differing cyber security concerns than traditional IT systems, especially if they have components that impact the physical world, such as autonomous vehicles and smart medical devices,” said Dan Klinedinst, senior vulnerability analyst in the CERT Division of the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University.
Here are the technologies that CERT, a group that researches a variety of issues with cyber security implications, will be keeping a close watch on this year:
- Autonomous cars
- Commercial autonomous aerial vehicles
- Autonomous Commercial Transportation
- Smart robots
- Robotic surgery
- Augmented reality
- Personal assistants
- Machine learning/Big Data
- Artificial intelligence
- Building automation
- Software Defined Anything
- Internet of Things (IoT) Mesh Networks
