The Internet touches almost every aspect of our lives and has become the most powerful infrastructure in the world. Its importance will only grow along with the Internet of Things. But basic access to the Internet is under threat, people don’t trust it to be secure, and the technology that underpins it is due for a major update. The Internet may lose its ability to support innovation, and many of the gains we have seen over the past two decades could be erased.
