The use of weak and insecure protocols, especially on assets that are exposed to the outside world, and improper configuration and device settings appeared as the top dangers. With a focus on best practices and mitigation techniques, Help AG offers organizations important ideas for handling these risks in 2023.Tech Trends, 2023 & BeyondThe report outlines several tech trends shaping the cybersecurity landscape in the coming years. Integrated Cyber Defense is highlighted as crucial to combat increasingly numerous and sophisticated threats. The importance of Secure Cloud Enablement, Security Services Edge (SSE), Data and Identity Protection, and IoT Security is also emphasized.AI to slash traffic CongestionIn order to reduce traffic congestion and manage traffic lights, the UAE will collaborate with Google. Two agreements for traffic management have been reached between Google and Abu Dhabi's Integrated Transport Centre (ITC). The agreements serve as a showcase for the UAE's initiatives to advance important AI priorities for the nation in the areas of sustainability and research. The declaration was made at a gathering at the Mohamed bin Zayed University of Artificial Intelligence (MBZUAI), where the ITC also announced the beginning of two programs, one of which is Project GreenLight.To increase the effectiveness of traffic lights in the emirate and reduce traffic congestion and COsubscript emissions, an analytical system that uses AI approaches collects and analyses traffic data at intersections. To estimate traffic, identify regions of congestion, and create proactive measures to reduce it, Google's AI Platform will be used to analyze massive amounts of data from Google Maps.The ITC will also receive precise real-time data from Google Maps on the location of accidents and locations with heavy traffic. The agreements state that the parties will work together on initiatives that harness the power of AI to raise population well-being, reduce pollution, and improve the quality of life in Abu Dhabi by creating, organizing, and implementing cutting-edge transport and mobility solutions that cater to both the immediate and long-term needs of society.Project Green Light is a pilot project to create an artificial intelligence (AI) tool to gather vital information on traffic conditions at intersections in the United Arab Emirates. This tool will automatically optimize the efficiency of traffic light functions, helping to reduce vehicle congestion hotspots and subsequently improve air quality throughout the emirate by lowering carbon emissions.Mohamed Hussain Karmastaji, Executive Director of the ITC's ITS Sector, says, "Collaborating with Google will produce results that benefit road users in real-time. Through continued partnerships like this with government bodies, private sector partners, and community stakeholders, we are shaping a future where congestion is minimized, air quality is improved, and our cities thrive in harmony with the environment. With the launch of new AI tools, we are taking a significant step towards enhancing the daily commute experience for residents. We are excited about the positive impact this will have on our city, and we look forward to collaborating with stakeholders to create a sustainable, intelligent transportation system." CYBERSECURITY IS THE CRUCIAL COMPONENT OF SUCCESSFUL DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION AND NEEDS TO BE BUILT IN FROM DAY ZERO AND BEYOND
