What cybersecurity risks are we going to deal with in the metaverse and virtual worlds?

We are used to talk about the various opportunities offered by the next generation of digital experiences that will be accessible to a general audience and at enterprise level in every industry. The purpose of this article is to address the hidden face, which needs to be carefully assessed by organizations before opening services in this new realm: what type of new cyber risks are we going to face, and what could be the consequence if they are not anticipated and secured. The purpose is not to scare users and organizations with a long list of potential security breach that may happen. This is about becoming aware of everything that should be considered to secure the journey. And before deploying these types of experience at scale, whether targeting consumers, citizen, or employees, we obviously encourage business leaders to know and anticipate what could be done.

Cybersecurity is one of our core expertise, hence Capgemini could be your partner of choice to secure your existing or further digital online immersive experience. Please reach out to us to know more.
