Countering the threat from emerging technologies


A new range of disruptive technologies, collectively labelled The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4iR) is transforming the way we live and work by fusing the physical, digital and natural worlds together.

Behind the exciting prospects they offer lurk security risks capable of crippling organisations and infrastructure.

Based on our experience of helping organisations in critical environments mitigate the risk of complex and emerging threats, QinetiQ has created this new report - Countering the Threat from Emerging Technologies.

It outlines what we believe are five of the most prevalent emerging technologies and the risks they could present to critical infrastructure organisations. We then provide a clear set of recommendations to mitigate their impacts in the future.

Reduce reactive measures.
Become infrastructure-resilient.
