Cybersecurity Trends 2019 – New thinking on cybersecurity and privacy in a world where digital transformation beckons

In TÜV Rheinland’s Cybersecurity Trends 2019, we explore how the evolution of cybercrime is affecting emerging technologies such as Operational Technology (OT) in industry, the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as its impact on the perennial skills shortage and the balance of power among management.



A report by the cybersecurity experts at TÜV Rheinland

The challenges can sometimes look overwhelming but what matters far more is our ability to evolve to face the problems head on. At TÜV Rheinland, we firmly believe that with a long-term willingness to invest in expertise, and a commitment to work hard, progress will be made.
