The final theme for Cybersecurity Awareness Month is "The Future of Connected Devices." From the website: "The final week of Cybersecurity Awareness Month will look at the future of connected devices. This week will look at how technological innovations, such as 5G, might impact consumers’ and business’ online experiences (e.g. faster speeds and data transmission, larger attack surface for hackers), as well as how people/infrastructure can adapt to the continuous evolution of the connected devices moving forward. No matter what the future holds, however, every user needs to be empowered to do their part."
With the recent introduction of the iPhone 12 and its support for 5G, connected devices are becoming ever more capable. Especially with the amount of remote work taking place today, higher speed networks are the devices connected to them are becoming more critical.
This final week of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month looks at the future and what it may hold for networks and connected devices. As always, hopefully these posts have given you some important things to consider in making sure you remain as safe as possible in our connected world.
