Data security and the organisation of tomorrow
👋 Hi, I am Mark. I am a strategic futurist and innovation keynote speaker. I advise governments and enterprises on emerging technologies such as AI or the metaverse. My subscribers receive a free weekly newsletter on cutting-edge technology.

Good Day! This is my weekly newsletter, with a dose of insights into the future. The topic of this newsletter is the exponential times we live in, hence the title of f(x) = e^x, which is the (natural) exponential function.

Recently, I launched my new concept The Digital Speaker and you can now book me as an avatar or hologram. Also, my tech trend prediction for 2021 is out, read it here!

4 Ways to Ensure Data Security in Tomorrow's Organisation

My latest article:

Data security in tomorrow’s organisations will be fundamentally different than data security today. If you believe that data security today is a challenge, you will be surprised what it will be tomorrow. We live in a zero-trust world and organisations need to update their systems to prevent serious problems. In the years to come, data will only increase in importance and, as such, in value. With that will come increased attention by hackers to steal data or hack your products, services, or servers. Increasingly, this will be done by machines instead of human hackers, making it more difficult to prevent, detect and respond to. More than ever, data security is vital if we wish to benefit from data and here are four ways to ensure data security in tomorrow’s organisation.

Three Useful Nuggets of Information

My weekly tips from around the web to get you thinking.

1. Did Google fake quantum supremacy?

A paper from Google leaked last month claimed its researchers had achieved quantum supremacy. Now IBM says Google rigged the test and claims to perform the calculation done by Google with a ‘normal’ supercomputer. (Wired)

2. We can now write genomes from scratch.

Being able to write genetic code from scratch could be enormous for the biomedical, agricultural, and chemical industries—and for humanity as a whole. Four breakthroughs now enable us to design genomes from scratch. (Singularity hub)

3. Your car will be your next personal assistant.

In the future, artificially intelligent cars might respond to our emotions, adapting the environment to suit our needs. It was already difficult to escape AI, but now it becomes nearly impossible. (Wired)
