Frontier Communications – Preparing Yourself for the Internet of the Future

Industry: Internet

Internet will become like electricity

Rochester, NY (PRUnderground) May 19th, 2015

We all know the Internet has radically changed our daily lives. We’re more connected to family, friends and information than ever. Many believe that over the next decade, the Internet will become even less visible yet more important and embedded in everyday life. So is this a good or bad thing? Ever increasing speeds and the spread of the internet will enhance global connectivity, diminishing borders and fostering more positive relationships between societies. People will also have to make trade-offs, and actions based on convenience mean privacy will take a backseat. But the good news is that predictions like these can help guide us to bring about changes we want to see.

Online security in 2015

It seems like there’s a never-ending stream of cyberthreats and data breaches. Retailers, banks, governments—no one is safe. Both Target and The Home Depot experienced massive breaches in which millions of customers had their credit or debit card accounts hacked into (40 and 56 million, respectively). These types of breaches are becoming more and more common, because cybercriminals are becoming increasingly sophisticated and collaborative. This, on top of the non-stop advances in technology, create the perfect storm. Preparing for the unpredictable is the only way to minimize the impact of the unexpected. Raising awareness among consumers seems to be the first line of defense companies take in order to prevent cybercrime. But the reality is that’s just not enough. Creating solutions and encouraging employees to actually engage in security behaviors will be what really help reduce their risk. Sites like Ftrsecure.com have information on how you can protect yourself from cyber threats.

How it’ll help us monitor our daily habits

As more machines “talk” to each other and systems integrate, everything will become smarter. Driving will become much safer, with road sensors communicating directly to dashboards, letting driver’s know about unsafe conditions. These “smart cars” will also be able to automatically contact your mechanic when it’s time for a tune-up. Even our refrigerators will become smart, letting us know when we are running low on particular items, such as butter or milk, then updating your grocery list for you. You’ll even get reminders of what you need to pick up as you walk through the store, so you don’t have to make that dreaded second trip.

All that connectivity is why reliable, high-speed Internet will be crucial, so you can enjoy all the benefits that the future Internet will have to offer.
