10. Phishing Threats - as companies rush to be the first product on the market, holes and vulnerabilities that weren’t expected can appear, and there is a higher chance of data compromises.
11. Education - Additionally, next-generation antivirus (NGAV) and endpoint protection solutions are a necessity - We need a combination of the human brain, instinct and AI machine learning to detect and flush out novel threats.
12. The “freedom” and end-user ownership that Web3 will offer consumers is the same freedom that cybercriminals will also be able to enjoy. We need to find a solution whereby the vision of an autonomous web for all can be experienced, without opening up a huge can of worms.
