Paulius Petretis, leading cyber security expert gives brief overview of the future Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 recently revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, while acknowledging that to those who value privacy it could be one of the sexiest announcements coming out of the show.
Vilnius, Lithuania – January 17, 2018 – Paulius Petretis, CEO of VORAS Consulting posted a new blog on the company website entitled “New Wi-Fi Protected Access 3 Coming.”Mr. Petretis is all about helping companies keep their data protected and is anxious for the arrival of the new WPA3 with good reason.
Petretis writes, “Last year’s widespread KRACK attack made everyone and everything that uses Wi-Fi vulnerable.” He adds, “So, it comes as no surprise that a new wireless security protocol will be making its way into use.”
As Petretis points out, “The current Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) has been in place for nearly 14 years.” He continues adding, “While the announcement about WPA3 wasn’t necessarily the sexiest revelation at the recent annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, to those of us in cyber security, it’s pretty relevant news.”
According to Petretis, “All the sexy new gadgets coming out will primarily be running on Wi-Fi, so that gives cyber criminals more ways to work their way into the lives of individuals as well as corporations.” “Keeping the criminals out is pretty sexy when you value your privacy and the privacy of important data,” says Petrits.
Here’s what we have to look forward to with WPA3, according to Naked Security,

According to the annual survey initiated by the Info Security Europe, a whopping 93% of large organizations and 76% of small businesses had at least a single information security breach in 2011. Only 18% of the organizations affected by the infringements related to data protection laws had a consistent and effective contingency plan in place. According to Paulius, information is not something static – it evolves and mutates every day. It is the ecosystem of every business and if a single cell fails, it can bring down the entire business.
Therefore ensuring a consistent and up-to-date information protection policy must be the priority for all businesses – no matter how big or small they are. As it might be unrealistic to believe that any young or experienced entrepreneur can be the jack of all trades, the really smart decision is to rely on specialists who dedicate their professional lives to getting to know everything there is to know about protecting important business information.
With more than 16 years of experience in helping people, small businesses, and government organizations to protect their business secrets, Paulius believes that information security must help businesses achieve goals but not vice versa.
