Web3 and the Metaverse are Here…What Now?
Cybersecurity has advanced since the 1970’s first antivirus (AV) software program executed on ARPANET, written as ‘Reaper’ by Ray Tomlinson. The Web 1.0 “read” (internet) era of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s dictated Increased systems and internet security advancements. The early 2000s ushered in Web 2.0 with “read/write capabilities,” challenging industry and cybersecurity professionals even further to protect proprietary, sensitive, and personal data from more coordinated and elegant advanced persistent threats.
Well – Web 3.0 is here…and with Web 2.0 cybersecurity costs projected to be a $221B market by 2027, these numbers do not account for the tsunami of blockchain, cryptocurrency, NFT, DeFi, and metaverse security risks and vulnerabilities that will be introduced to many cybersecurity professionals soon, and at an exponential rate. This is primarily due to Web3 adoption from both SMBs and Fortune 500 companies wanting to join the blockchain and the Metaverse. Are you ready?
