Frost & Sullivan analyses future of privacy and cybersecurity

frostFrost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, The Future of Privacy and Cybersecurity, Forecast to 2030, finds that by 2030, there will be a complex global network of 200 billion devices, with more than 20 connected devices per human

As the Internet of Things landscape is expected to progressively expand beyond the traditional network in use now, there will be an increase in the complexity of privacy and cybersecurity challenges.

Consequently, the market will experience deeper synergies among data protection, security, privacy, and public good as more international frameworks are developed to govern the Internet.

Vinay Venkatesan, visionary innovation research consultant, said, “Artificial Intelligence (AI) will emerge as the new frontier of privacy and cybersecurity as enterprises explore new opportunities and train a capable workforce to identify critical threats, respond faster to breaches, and learn from them.

“In addition to AI, data de-identification, advanced authentication and encryption, biometrics, blockchain, automation, and quantum computing also will have the potential to transform privacy and cybersecurity.”

“There will be more than 26 smart cities by 2025, most of them in North America and Europe. Additionally, boundaries between work and home continue to blur, as we're experiencing right now. This means every connected device in a smart home, enterprise or city will be a potential access point to our most sensitive and personal data, making mass non-consensual data collection feasible and cybersecurity all the more vital,” Venkatesan added.
