The Future of the Grid
Information in this chapter:
• The challenge of making predictions
• The value of personal data
• Cyber security considerations for the future
• The future of cyber security countermeasures
No one knows what the future will bring, but by looking at trends in malware activity, hacktivism, cyber espionage, and advanced persistent threats—as well as trends in regulations, industry activities, and cyber security technology—we can certainly speculate. This chapter takes a step away from fact and delves into the nebulous world of conjecture, supposition and hearsay: not everything here is as it seems!
