Quick UDP Internet Connections (QUIC)
As we move into the new decade, the majority of web hosting companies will announce support for new protocols such as Quick UDP Internet Connections (QUIC), a general-purpose transport layer network. QUIC provides built-in security and performance features like authentication and encryption that are usually provided by higher-layer protocols. By replacing the TLS record layer with its own framing, QUIC ensures quick connections, no pun intended, all while maintaining authentication and encryption — two things that all Internet users benefit from.

Secure HTTP
The newest version of the HTTP protocol (HTTP/3) is based on QUIC I think this is very helpful, we need to make internet protocol secure by default.

TLS 1.3
Given that all major browsers now support TLS 1.3, Glad to see TLS 1.3 is becoming default encryption method, we really need to go beyond SSL.

Re: Cybersecurity
Yes, I like it too. Also just to add, IPv6 has better security then IPv4, so IPv6 should be the default choice.

Not a goal
But security is a process, not a goal, and web developers Security has to be an ongoing keeping up with the technological changes and threats. Not a spot in a timeline it is a process.
