“Stop Asking Me for My Email Address” and “Tech Security Upstarts Enter Fray” by Nicole Perlroth (@nicoleperlroth) at the New York Times are just two more examples of coverage that validate our predictions about ongoing interest in privacy and online security.
Apparently the security market for software itself will generate $67 billion.
These are two themes that will continue to generate coverage over the rest of the decade. As self-driving cars (SDC) get ready for prime time (is it time to retire that phrase? — probably), expect privacy and security to focus on new issues related to cars, like in this recent Times article: “The Next Data Privacy Battle May Be Waged Inside Your Car.” There will be privacy reporters concerned about the ability to track other people’s cars — whether you’re joining them at an event and want to know where it is or when they’re getting their or if you’re stalking them — and security reporters concerned about the ability to hack and take over someone else’s car.
