This week on Cyber Frontiers Jim and Christian discuss the upcoming predictions for where the cybersecurity and data science communities trend in 2018. What trends are new on the horizon, and which will only naturally accelerate trends already started? Will passwords finally bite the dust as MFA rules the day? Will AI march closer to the takeover of mankind? Will the repeal of net neutrality impact the way we consume the internet?  We talk technology trends that impact security, data, and the technologies that intersect along the way as the new year is ushered in.


Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future!   Christian Johnson will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
