IT security in 2020

Predicting how the world will look like a hundred years from now might seem to many like an exercise in futility given the rapid pace of technological development, but a prediction of what kind of information security threats await us eight years from now can give a welcome insight if the forecast is made by someone living and breathing in that particular world.

In this podcast recorded at Virus Bulletin 2011, Kaspersky Lab’s Maksym Schipka paints a picture about the future of computer and information technology, and the threats that will likely be targeting Internet users in 2020.
