The end of the year is approaching and security pros are making their predictions for 2018 and beyond. So are we! This week, our security practitioners predicted items that will become obsolete because of IoT devices. Some of their guesses – remote controls, service workers, and personal cars.

Meanwhile, as the business world phase out old technologies, some are embracing the use of new ones. For instance, many organizations today use chatbots. Yes, they’ll help improve customer service. But some are worried that when financial institutions embrace chatbots to facilitate payments, cyber criminals will see it as an opportunity to impersonate users and take over their accounts.

And what about trackers found in apps bundled with DNA testing kits? From a developer’s perspective, all the trackers help improve the usability of an app, but does that mean we’ll be sacrificing security and privacy?
