Top Cybersecurity Predictions for 2023

Cybersecurity is a sector of growing importance as we continue to blur the lines between the physical and digital worlds. But what are the biggest cybersecurity threats on the horizon in 2023? Here are some of the biggest threats cybersecurity experts are on the lookout for in the upcoming year.

  1. Secure access service edge (SASE) is a cybersecurity technology on the verge of a massive push as organizations seek simplified solutions, tighter technology stacks and an achievable alignment between network performance and security.
  2. Updated security platforms and tools are more broadly adopting zero trust integration. This will continue in 2023 as user authentication demands continue to rise.
  3. Targeted ransomware attacks are on the rise. More companies, more municipalities and more core service businesses must be on the lookout and ensure that they are comprehensively protected by a triad of methods: a secure environment, an elegant breach recovery plan and an ongoing security and compliance assurance plan.
  4. Cyber insurance companies are pushing back against the recent onslaught of cyberattacks. As more discussion about cybersecurity and cyber insurance continues, there will be more reporting, new cyber insurance ramifications and new pre-compliance standards adopted.
  5. For all the financial opportunity crypto promised investors and aspires to create, its reputation has taken a beating in recent years as the fragility of the space has created much uncertainty. A major crypto event could be the final domino that knocks them all down.
  6. Cybercrime is hard to prove, especially when conducted by an insider. But we can expect more apprehensions and arrest warrants for insiders that wish to do harm from the inside in the coming year.
  7. It seems like nothing is immune from inflation, and the hammer will start to come down harder and more frequently when an organization is breached as state privacy laws become more strict and more punitive.
