13 Industry Trends Expected To Shape The Cybersecurity Space Through 2023 – NEWS

2023 has finally arrived and while cybersecurity experts all around may be hoping for a less tumultuous year, cybercriminals are never resting. 2022 was an emblematic year for data breaches, hacks, and attacks. It saw the rise of various phishing schemes, crypto heists, and hacktivism around the war between Russia and Ukraine.

With the current technological revolution, cybercriminals are becoming smarter and more creative in their ways to extort data and information. Crystal balls aside, it’s a challenge for all cybersecurity experts to aim to predict individuals’ behaviors.
That’s why the AMATAS team has decided to look toward the big picture of things. We know that geopolitical turmoil, alongside the technology disruption, will continue to evolve the mature, yet volatile threat landscape.
Within our new year’s article, we present you with thirteen key trends we can expect to afflict the cybersecurity space.
Smart Devices (Internet of Things, IoT) and Cloud Networks
A Gartner study has found that in 2023, there’ll be 43 billion IoT devices functioning around the world. This high volume of connectivity nevertheless enhances the risk of targeted attacks on smart devices. Consider integrating system and network solutions to make your devices more secure. As you may already know that prevention is the number one precaution you can take against cyberattacks.

AI Risk and Security Managemen

The AI cybersecurity market is expected to expand to $133.8 billion by 2030 – no surprise there. As it was discovered that 41% of US, UK, and German organizations have experienced security breaches and incidents due to a lack of AI security measures. Threat detection, while ensuring data integrity, availability, and confidentiality, will require cross-department collaborations between cybersecurity and AI professionals.

Hybrid Work

Within the past two years, we’ve all been forced to adapt to the new post-pandemic normal. Meaning most of us will probably be working from home, connecting our personal devices to work networks. This is a huge chink in organizations’ cybersecurity armor, as it provides gateways and backdoors for hackers to exploit the most vulnerable and valuable information.
Installing Zero Trust policies in the way we work, should be the focus of all companies through 2023, as recommended by James Range, President of White Rock Security Group:

Zero trust will take on greater prominence with the continued role of the remote and hybrid workplace…2023 becomes the year of verifying everything.

Disinformation Campaigns

In 2023, over 70 countries will hold their government elections. That’s when hacktivists are most likely to resurface and become more active than ever before. One of their favorite targets is critical government infrastructures, as well as social media. During this period, be wary of disinformation campaigns and fake news.

Zero trust will take on greater prominence with the continued role of the remote and hybrid workplace…2023 becomes the year of verifying everything.

This is one of the trends, as noted by Kaspersky Security Evangelist, Vladimir Dashchenko. He continues,

Global political conglomerates will unfortunately influence cyberspace and cybersecurity.
