News and Blogs

12th December 2023

The global cost of a data breach last year was £3.5 million. This is an increase of 15% over three years. As we step into 2024, it’s crucial to be aware of emerging technology threats. Ones that could potentially disrupt and harm your business.  

Data Poisoning Attacks  

Data poisoning involves corrupting datasets used to train AI models. Businesses should use AI-generated data cautiously. It should be heavily augmented by human intelligence and data from other sources.  

5G Network Vulnerabilities  

The widespread adoption of 5G technology introduces new attack surfaces. IoT devices, reliant on 5G, might become targets for cyberattacks.  

Quantum Computing Vulnerabilities  

Quantum computing poses a threat. Its immense processing capabilities could crack currently secure encryption methods.  

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Manipulation  

AI, while transformative, can be manipulated. Cybercriminals can exploit AI algorithms to spread misinformation. Vigilance is essential as AI-driven threats become more sophisticated. It demands robust detection mechanisms to discern genuine from malicious AI-generated content. 

Ransomware Evolves  

Ransomware attacks have evolved beyond simple data encryption. Threat actors now steal sensitive data before encrypting files.  

Biometric Data Vulnerability  

Biometric authentication methods, such as fingerprints or facial recognition, are becoming commonplace. However, users can’t change biometric data once compromised. Protect biometric data through secure encryption. 

The evolution of communication technology has revolutionised the way businesses operate. The transition from traditional phone systems to VoIP is no longer a luxury but a necessity for organisations seeking enhanced functionality, cost savings, and improved scalability.
