Magnus Kalkuhl, director of Kaspersky Lab’s European Global Research and Analysis Team, predicts the future of IT will dramatically shift by 2030 as cloud computing, augmented reality, quantum computing, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology evolve into the next generation of information technology.
In Kalkuhl’s article “IT Security in 2030” a bright future of a technology-driven utopia, fueled by innovation and opportunity, is depicted that is completely separate from today’s device and computer-centric digital world. However, as the evolutionary development of future technologies accelerates, Kalkuhl also offers the alternative view of a technology-dependent dystopia, where issues regarding citizens’ privacy, individuality and overall security will be called into question future utopia fueled by innovation and opportunity.
“IT Security in 2030” offers a view into the technologies that are most likely to become a tomorrow’s “day-to-day reality” while analyzing the potential benefits and dangers for each one.

"There is now doubt that our dependence on computer technology will continue to grow. The bright side is that new, revolutionary inventions will make our life better. Unfortunately, modern cyber threats will evolve as well, starting from Trojans to cyber weapons. Every new technology will present even more security challenges. It is part of my job now to overcome them and make the world a little bit better. And, despite the ever-growing threat landscape, in my predictions I tend to stay on the positive side of things."
