As 2023 draws to an end and cybersecurity budgeting is nearly complete, it helps to consider the year’s events and try to predict next year’s trends. After receiving input from industry experts and doing my own analysis of the year’s driving forces, I identified five major cybersecurity trends. We each need to consider how these trends may affect our organizations and allocate our budgets and resources accordingly:

  • AI will turbo-charge cybersecurity and cyberthreats: Artificial intelligence (AI) will boost both attackers and defenders while causing governance issues and learning pains. Read more.
  • Cybercrime will go to the next level: Cyberattackers will implement improved skills, “shift left” attacks, and shifting strategies to adjust to evolving cyberdefense. Read more.
  • Attack surfaces will explode: Cyberdefense complexity will compound as API, cloud, edge, and OT resources add to the list of assets to defend. Read more.
  • Government actions will increase: Expect more government regulations, state-sponsored cyberattacks, and increased documentation required to protect CISOs. Read more.
  • 2023 cybersecurity issues will continue: Weak IT fundamentals, poor cybersecurity awareness, and ransomware will still cause problems and make headlines. Read more.
  • Bottom line: Prepare now based on risk. Read more.

Weak Security Foundations

Even as vendors and technologies race ahead to tackle next year’s threats, many organizations lag in basic cybersecurity fundamentals such as asset managementidentityaccess managementdefense in depth, and cybersecurity awareness and training.

“Some of the foundational requirements for securing an organization will continue to challenge InfoSec leaders – primarily, establishing comprehensive visibility into all assets and tight control over who can access them and with what level of privileges,” acknowledges Vinay Anand, Chief Product Officer of NetSPI.
