Some tidal waves, like distant do the job, will not recede. Problems and challenges of security and basic safety will come to be additional urgent than at any time, with impacts on the provide chain, towards additional designed-by-style and design traceability, on sustainability, decarbonization and, of program, on cybersecurity.
