Top 3 Security Trends for 2016

The year of 2016 is positioned to be another incredible year for the world of technology and innovation. In the security space, trend-spotting is key to keeping security at its pinnacle for our own internal organizations, as well as for the organizations of our clients and employers. These trends are poised to be among the most influential in the coming year and are on the tip of the tongue for tech and security enthusiasts worldwide.

1. Biometric Access Systems While traditional access control systems are high-tech and 100% functional, adding biometrics to these systems only create enhanced protection of access. Biometric access systems use information like the following to allow employees to swipe into company buildings, for example:

  • fingerprints
  • iris and retinal scans
  • hand geometry
  • facial recognition technology

With that all being said, and while fingerprints and retinal scans are immensely difficult to forge or spoof, the vulnerability aspect is not entirely eliminated.

2. Wearable Technology Poised to become a legitimate rival to the smartphone in terms of mobile computing, the wearable technology represents a relevant trend that is looking to gain a much greater footing in 2016. The smartwatch is one of the most well-known applications to this day, but wearable technology can take the form of a number of different form factors including eyeglasses, clothing, rings, and more!.

3. Internet of Things With countless smart devices becoming available each succeeding quarter, the technology and greater security spaces are wrangling waiting to take on these "smart devices". This technology is coming onto to the world's internet and individual local intranets. Systems managing and gating access to these devices is a very valuable resource consideration while also being one of the most central themes to watch in hardware threat vulnerability in 2016 versus any time in the past..

Staying up to date on any means of enhancing security or avoiding chances for security breaches is essential for individuals and organizations looking to double-down on their security infrastructures and schematics in the coming year.

While minor trends and elements will also pop into the conversation as well, these three are the main shooting stars to keep on the horizon. Biometric access systems, wearable technology, and the IoT are trends that are also expected to continue to grow in relevance and prevalence in the tech-security space that their inclusion in this presentation was a given. How each specific organization decides to address these technologies as a security concern will take considerable investment and study.
