Introduction
With the advancements in technology, the challenges associated with
them have increased as well. Technological advancements have the
capability to influence the lives of people across the globe in both positive
and negative manner. It resulted in making their lives easier and enabling
them to communicate with others globally. However, the technology is
proliferating, and it poses many threats for individuals, organisations and
governments across the globe (Piotrowicz and Cuthbertson, 2014). Due to
this fast development in technology field, it has become difficult for
parties to implement appropriate security policies to ensure that these
technologies did not negatively influence a large number of people. It has
become easier for cyber criminals to hack into the data of people and
organisations to collect their private data and violate their privacy.
New technological advancements have the potential to wipe out the entire
humankind that shows how significant and challenging it is for individuals
and organisations to ensure that they did not misuse the technological
advancements. The advancement in information technology poses
substantial threat to the privacy of information of individuals and
organisations which leads to challenges such as breach of privacy, identity
theft, blackmailing and others (Webb, Gibson and Forkosh-Baruch, 2013).
In this report, the biggest challenges which people, organisations and
governments face relating to information technology will be discussed.
Various solutions for addressing these issues will be included in the report
as well.

Future of Information Technology
The future of information technology poses bigger challenges relating to
security. The lack of security guidelines resulted in negatively impacting
connectivity to public networks. If appropriate solutions are not
implemented to address this issue, then the risk relating to users’ privacy
will increase substantially. The biggest risk is not related to the machines
which are used in this field, instead, it is the people who operations in this
industry which will present challenges in the future. The technology
advances rapidly, and it influences people operating at all levels. The real
challenge is dealing with individuals and technologies to ensure that they
work best for the interest of people and organisations and assist in
achieving long-term goals. The technologies such as cloud computing,
artificial intelligence, and machine learning are developing rapidly, and
these technologies have the potential to change people’s lives completely
(Prajogo and Olhager, 2012).
These advancements have a significant influence on the information
technology industry as well. As the world develops, organisations will
continue to use information technology to gain a competitive advantage in
their respected industry (Webb, Gibson and Forkosh-Baruch, 2013). In the
future, trends such as platform architecture, social platforms, cloud
computing and data privacy will likely to influence the future of the
information technology. Thus, along with these advancements, the
challenges related to information technology will grow as well which will
adversely influence individuals, organisations and governments.
Biggest Challenges relating to information technology
Cloud computing
The cloud computing technology has the ability to connect a large number
of computers to a single network which enables them to share data
globally and provide its users a ubiquitous system. Thus, it raises many
challenges relating to information technology. The key challenges faced
