The metaverse envisions a future internet as a distributed, multi-vendor environment accessible through various connected devices. Users can experience this immersive and interactive space via virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (MR), and extended reality (XR) technologies. Building upon existing Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 foundations, the metaverse creates an interactive layer on the current internet, offering an open platform for work and play. This concept shares similarities with existing massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs).

METAVERSE SECURITY ASSESSMENT

BENEFITS OF PEN TESTING

METAVERSE

Anticipate risks associated with NFTs: transactions in the metaverse may incur fees, necessitating broker involvement for asset exchanges, providing avenues for cyber attackers to impersonate brokers and pilfer payment data, highlighting the importance of robust authentication and transaction monitoring to mitigate fraud within digital asset ecosystems

Mitigate ransomware threats as operators may target and attempt to ransom NFTs within the metaverse.

Conventional IT attacks, like vulnerability exploitation, can grant access to industrial equipment

Implement measures to mitigate the risk of avatar tracking and revealing a person's virtual location.

Counter cybercriminals gaining access to a power plant's digital twin by implementing safeguards to prevent unlawful entry into internal systems or the ICS/SCADA environment

Address embedded system and OS vulnerabilities through comprehensive security measures to fortify defences and minimize the risk of exploitation.
