Due to the global pandemic, the past year was marked by monumental changes with an increase in the use of technology. A large part of Cybertech will thus be dedicated to cybersecurity challenges, strategies and repercussions in a wide range of sectors and disciplines such as fintech, retail, insurance, aviation, economics, and politics.

Experts predict that 2021 will be another year of significant transition and rising threats, with attacks not only growing in frequency but becoming increasingly organisation-wide and highly impactful.

“Cybersecurity will continue to play an integral role in managing the current global crisis,” said Amir Rapaport, founder and editor-in-chief of Cybertech. “From 5G networks, work from home, to augmented analytics to digital ethics, cyber is omnipresent. While for many years, cybersecurity awareness was not encouraged, organisations of all sizes now understand that they have no choice but to secure their business.

“Recent events have shown us the severity of these attacks and the impact they can have on individual security as well,” he added.
