it-sa 2016: RadarServices introduces study concerning “Cyber attacks and IT-security in 2025”

Nuremberg, 18 October 2016. RadarServices, Europe’s leading provider of Managed Security Services introduces its new study concerning “Cyber attacks and IT-security in 2025” at it-sa, the largest trade fair for IT-security in the German speaking area. Designated IT security experts in Europe and Asia have been interviewed with regards to future IT-security trends and challenges. They shared their views concerning the development of cyber attacks and security technologies until 2025.

The resulting “big picture” for IT-security based on the expert answers are characterized by an alarming future trend: a lack of IT security awareness by users and new technology providers are considerably complicating future IT security. Even more so: these factors will play into the hands of cyber attackers. A worrying outlook if one takes into consideration the rapidly growing dependency of (secure) IT in all areas of life as well as its potential disruption effects.

“The expert answers should be understood as warning signals: namely that it is high time to improve the framework conditions of users and technology providers for the further development of IT security, instead of unconsciously enhancing the sphere of activities for cyber attackers”, comments Harald Reisinger, Managing Director of RadarServices the results of this study.
