The American microchip manufacturer Gordon Earle Moore is often accredited with the term Moore’s Law, which is ‘the principle that the speed and capability of computers can be expected to double every two years, as a result of increases in the number of transistors a microchip can contain.’ With this, technology has been able to advance at a faster rate than normal, which is often the reason for the seemingly never-ending new phones, phone applications, and appliances that hit the market every year.
In turn, there have been many advancements in technology solutions invented to make security technology better. The early hackers and email scams in the earlier 2000’s have been met with firewalls, anti viruses, and security cameras that help provide peace of mind. As the world changes, there is a need for modern solutions to modern security problems, namely cybersecurity.
There are many ways through which attackers and cyber criminals can infiltrate the security systems of companies and even private citizens. These cyber-espionage occurrences necessitate the invention of better security systems.
Among the top security solutions for the future are:
New technology has emerged that confuses cyber criminals while working to capture them. Security network technology is being created to notify businesses and private citizens when they are being hacked by an intruder in their system. This technology gives fake data to the infiltrator when they try to hack the system, so they just end up wasting their time. Meanwhile, the new tech then tracks their location as they peruse the false files. It truly is a better mousetrap designed to capture a cyber rat.
Always assume that the attacker already has access to your data. This assumption helps you to be a step ahead of the attacker by having all your data encrypted. The data can be set as such that it can only be decrypted within the database locality so even if it is stolen the attacker has no chance of decrypting it outside of a specific physical location.
PARC researchers and other security companies are working on a self-destructing computer chip. The chip can be used and then, after it has fulfilled its purpose, it turns to dust, self-destructing so that the information on it cannot fall into the wrong hands. The chip functions normally and the self-destruction can be activated at any time when an electric component is prompted.
