Cybersecurity for the Fourth Industrial Revolution

The World Economic Forum and other business analysts increasingly recognize that the world is currently undergoing its fourth industrial revolution. The first industrial revolution kicked off in the 18th and 19th centuries with the harnessing of steam and waterpower to replace human labor and mechanize transportation.
