  1. 1. PART 2 Conversational platforms will be huge in terms of changing how humans interact with the digital world. Translating will shift from human to computer. The platform will take a command from the user and will re- spond through performing a function or asking for further input. Conversational Platforms 6 It will not be surprising to see conversa- tional interfaces as a primary design goal for user interaction and for this technolo- gy to be present in OS features and dedi- cated hardware.

Event Driven 9 Leaders must adopt a continuous adaptive risk and trust assessment (CARTA) approach in order for real-time, risk and trust-based decision making to take place. Security infra- structure should be adaptable in order to embrace opportunity, whilst also managing risks which naturally come with delivering security that moves forwards at the rate of digital enterprises. 910 Continuous Adaptive Risk and Trust 20
