Technological innovation in the wake of the pandemic

Antivirus Technology

We already know that the Covid-19 pandemic caused a whole digital acceleration in our daily lives. We learned about the importance of cybersecurity on recommended pages on, that cyber criminals use methods such as pishing, malware and that they hijack data to demand a ransom.

With this digital acceleration, telecommuting was the salvation of some and e-commerce of others, we also understood the importance of video calls and applications that allow us to talk to more than 5 people.

A year and a half later, many of these things do not seem to stay as expected, as in the case of teleworking, which, with the return to the routine after the holidays, in Spain has fallen by more than 50%, but many others do.

Digital business, payment platforms..

What do we have left of the 2020 digital acceleration after the pandemic?

For many businesses, technology adaptation was the only way for their business to stay afloat, even though, for many, especially for traditional businesses, before the pandemic, technology adaptation was something they didn’t think about.

That’s one of the things we’ll be left with after the pandemic, technological adaptation for many businesses, to remain competitive in a post-pandemic and increasingly innovative world.

With innovation in business, we will probably rely more on mobile phones to shop or order from restaurants from now on. We will also find robots in hotels on our travels, or simply machines for reservations, check-out or even elevators with holographic buttons, avoiding as much contact as possible at all costs.

Along with the avoidance of contact with other people, the rise, even more so, of online commerce has played a part in changing consumer behaviour with regard to online consumption.

This is not just something that will remain after the pandemic, but something that will be on the rise, and that may offer us more interesting propositions in the short to medium term.

Since the figures with regard to online consumption on the Internet, during the pandemic does not stop reaching historical figures.

To support global hyperconnectivity, a better network will be necessary. The alternative and solution will be 5G. Although it was estimated that the full implementation of the networks will occur between 2021 and 2030, the Covid, has changed the plans, and it is likely that 5G networks will reach every corner of the world ahead of schedule, offering data download 5 times faster than the current 4G.

Although trends such as Blockchain, the internet of things, or virtual reality need to be studied, one of the advances, or rather cures among so much technology that does need to stay is Cybersecurity.

Cybercriminals, now more than ever, with a hyperconnected world will not stop sending fake emails, gift vouchers, or launch ransomware attacks, to do with our data and try to empty our bank account, or as mentioned above, blackmail companies.

So cybersecurity is one of the most important changes that will remain and that we need to pay quite a bit of attention to.

Although Covid, took it upon itself to accelerate this transformation, many will now have to consider whether to ride this wave, or stagnate by staying far away from the new economic realities.
