With increasing levels of remote working and IoT developments like the Smart City and Connected Mobility, the attack vectors - both technological and human - are becoming more numerous and potentially more dangerous. As technology advances, new processes, new methods, and new styles of security are becoming more important to ensure that digital assets and the underlying Internet infrastructure are well protected.
