    Digital society and enterprise’s ever-growing reliance on data and interconnectivity is ushering in new risks of large-scale cybersecurity incidents with cascading disruptive consequences. 

    Evolved threats to critical infrastructure and human implants will increasingly blur the distinction between cyber and physical attack, resulting in offline destruction and physical injury.

    Moreover, increasing incorporation of augmented and virtual reality technologies into daily life has the potential to result in cybercrimes which entail psychological harm to individuals.
