IEEE has released the results of a new survey focusing on the impact of technology on developments to 2023 and beyond. The survey is based on data from the US, UK,China,IndiaandBrazilFeedback from 350 global technology leaders including CTOs, CIOs and IT executives.

According to the survey, cloud computing (40%), 5G (38%), metaverse (37%), electric vehicles (EV) (35%) and industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) (33%) will be the most important in 2023 five technical areas. Among them, the Metaverse is still in its infancy;71% of respondents believe that “5G and ubiquitous connectivity” is very important to the development of the metaverse, and 58% believe that VR headsets and AR glasses are also important.

The industry sectors most impacted by technology in 2023 are:

  • (40%) Telecommunications
  • (39%) Automotive and Transportation
  • (33%) Energy
  • (33%) Banking and Financial Services

On the other hand, the issue of network security in 2023 is still the focus of attention of all parties. Data shows that in the first half of 2022, there will be 2.8 billion malware attacks and 236.1 million ransomware attacks worldwide. By the end of 2022, an estimated 6 billion phishing attacks will be launched.Tech leaders are paying more attention to cybersecurity than in previous years,Fifty-one percent of respondents cite cloud vulnerabilities as a top concern (up from 35% in 2022), and 43% are concerned about data center vulnerabilities (up from 27% in 2022).

Other areas of focus for cybersecurity professionals include:

  • Ransomware attack (30%)
  • Coordinated attacks on an organization’s network (30%)
  • Lack of investment in security solutions (26%)

The top 10 security threats IT departments are likely to encounter in 2023 are:

  • malicious software:Can extract confidential information, deny service and gain access to systems.
  • Ransomware:As of 2022, ransomware attacks on companies are 33% higher than in 2021. Many companies agreed to pay the ransom to restore their systems, only to be hit again by the same ransomware attackers.
  • Supply Chain Vulnerabilities:One of the steps that can be taken is to audit their suppliers and the security measures used by suppliers to ensure the security of the end-to-end supply chain.
  • Phishing:Phishing is a major threat to businesses. It would be helpful to train employees on how to spot fake emails, report them, and never open them. IT should work with HR to ensure good email habits are instilled.
  • Internet of Things:In 2020, 61% of companies are using IoT, and this percentage continues to increase. As the Internet of Things expands, so do security risks.
  • internal staff:Disgruntled employees can compromise networks or steal intellectual property and proprietary information, while employees with poor security habits can inadvertently share passwords and leave devices unprotected.
  • Data poisoning:Data poisoning is a new attack vector entering enterprise systems.
  • new technology:SomeOrganizations are adopting new technologies such as biometrics. These technologies bring enormous benefits, but they also introduce new security risks because IT has limited experience with them.
  • Multiple Layers of Security:IT departments can strengthen security by establishing a checklist for each point of security breach in the workflow.
  • cloud security
