Note: This is a long post about infosec in 2016 and 2017. Read when you have the time.
2016 has been an interesting year. Donald Trump became president elect. The Syrian crisis worsened. Brexit happened. India demonetised 87% of its currency in one stroke. Cybersecurity and infosec was uttered more frequently in corporate boardrooms – and for good reason too.
How was the year for infosec? Here are a few areas where things happened and will probably continue to happen in 2017.
- Data Privacy and our apathy toward it
- The rise and rise of ransomware
- IoT security
- Net Neutrality
- Infosec – attacks and defence
- General news and happenings
