2019 brought about some of the most highly anticipated, newsworthy developments in cybersecurity—from rampant data breaches of all sizes and types to the countless bots that are still impacting social media and political discourse, among other identity-centric innovations. It was certainly a year of change for the identity management world, as policymakers debated the benefits of facial recognition technologies in the spring, and come fall, the world is getting to experience the negative effects of smart cities in real-time with the protests in Hong Kong. As we stand at the precipice of 2020, it’s hard to imagine how the identity and security landscape might change. In many ways, all of the prominent issues of 2019 will become even more prevalent and controversial.
In this webinar, we’ll outline potential paths for a few different identity and cybersecurity trends, especially as privacy and data protection regulations like GDPR and CCPA continue to normalize, forcing businesses of all sizes, industries, and locations to demonstrate compliance with new and evolving data security obligations.. Additionally, more recent trends like deepfakes are sure to be influential on the upcoming U.S. 2020 election and on the growing number of data breaches, which means staying one step ahead of the cybercriminals will be paramount to successfully combating their efforts.
Join us to learn about the five biggest identity security trends from 2019 that are most likely to mature in 2020, as we discuss how yesterday’s trends will impact tomorrow’s political, cultural, and digital landscape.
