o Future of IoT Beyond 2020 - Doom or Salvation? - By Osama Tahir - Security Challenges of IoT - It is estimated that there will be 25 billion IoT devices by the end of 2020. And predictions show that by 2050, there will be more than 100 billion IoT-connected devices in the world. But there are too many risks related to these IoT connected devices. Have you heard how hackers accessed a baby monitor? Or Iran hacked a US drone? Or you only care about how an IoT device can switch on your bedroom lights?


o The Future of Phishing: Deep Fakes, Coronavirus, US Elections 2020 & More - By Osama Tahir - Phishing is the oldest trick in a hacker's book. Yet, despite its age, this particular attack vector is the most enduring of them all. Over time, phishing attempts have largely improved in their ability to appear more legitimate and convincingly deceive the layman and, indeed, even cybersecurity experts in many cases. With the emergence of artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, and related technologies, the volume and virulence of phishing is only likely to increase. Unsurprisingly, APWG reports phishing websites to have increased from a number of 138,328 to 266,387, representing an almost twofold increase in the short period between 2018 Q4 and 2019 Q3.

o What is the Dark Web: Things You Need To Know Before Accessing The Dark Web - The dark web, also known as "darknet" is a portion of the internet that lies outside the boundaries of traditional search engines. You won't find any links to sites or pages for dark web content on Google. The dark web is a small portion of the deep web which is not indexed by search engines or accessible by traditional means. Most people have heard references to the "dark web" but don't really know what it is or how it works. At times, especially after a significant data breach, information is sold on the dark web. Cybersecurity researchers have run tests that prove about 57% of the content and websites on the dark web are selling illicit goods and services. That figure was calculated in 2015; by now, it is estimated to be much higher.
