The Increasing Effect of Geopolitics on Cybersecurity by http://bit.ly/2xTAkM8

The effect of geopolitics on cybersecurity can be seen daily – from Chinese cyber espionage to Russian attacks on the Ukraine and North Korea’s financially-motivated attacks against SWIFT and Bitcoins – and, of course, Russian interference in western elections and notably the US 2016 presidential election.

The primary cause is political mistrust between different geopolitical regions combined with the emergence of cyberspace as a de facto theater of war.

The Internet of Things is a fascinating concept that has occupied our minds for decades, only this time around, it’s a reality. IoT opens up a world of possibilities. The benefits are obvious….

…While that is all great, the problem with IoT is that it’s a centralized system, meaning that all devices are connected online inside the cloud. But such communication is far from optimal in case they are only a few feet apart, which is often the case with household electronics. And there is also the fact that, as the IoT becomes more present, it requires a much larger and more complex infrastructure, which will drive the price up, according to Mitch Bailey, who is the head of IT for Assignment Masters. He also points out that the solution might lie within blockchain, which is what Bitcoin relies on today.

Remember back in the ’80s, when we all thought that by the year 2000, we’d own flying cars and have legit robot maids like the Jetsons did? It felt like the future was just around the corner!

Fast forward to today – Siri, Cortana, and Alexa have showed up in our phones and living rooms, listening to our voices and doing their very best to carry out our demands.

If you paid attention to a little announcement earlier this year, you might think that Facebook chat bots (or “chat extensions”) are the next part of the future – the future future? – and they’re taking over social media marketing.
