Which of the cybercriminal threats envisaged in the Project 2020 narratives do you believe will actually
pose the largest threat to society in the future (i.e., in the year 2020 and beyond)?
What can you,
as someone poised to enter the workforce as a cybersecurity professional or cybercrime investigator, do
to combat that threat?
Be as specific as possible regarding your strategy. Discuss thoroughly.
ICSPA's white paper (2013) presented several interesting points on current and emerging threats, such as
data loss, economic threats, exploits of company's sites and services, misuse of processing power,
counterfeit, espionage, along with evasion tools and techniques. The threat speaks the greatest volume
that could pose the largest threat to society in the future in my opinion would be the evolved threats to
critical infrastructure and human implants that would result in physical injury to people. As technology
advances, and new innovations to make life easier become available, this threat is sure to increase
significantly making the threat a combination of both cyber and physical. A clear example was presented
by ICSPA (2013), where connected devices that are physically implanted could be hacked. In an article by
Gillan (2019), transhumanists are on the rise, which are people that are getting implants within their
