Hackers develop their tactics, approaches, and processes on a regular basis. and defenders must adapt and remain persistent if they are to keep up.
We would like to share SAT Microsystems’ predictions for the industry!
1. Spending on training programs will be reduced as a result of the Recession:
Despite the notion that cybersecurity is a recession-proof sector, personnel and quality are likely to suffer during the economic downturn. Core cybersecurity costs are not being cut at this time, but other ‘discretionary’ sectors, such as training expenses, are likely to be reduced
2. Non-state and non-organized attackers
We anticipate that non-nation state attackers and non-organized attackers will undertake more intrusions in 2023. More threat actors operating out of North America and Europe will likely be younger, conducting intrusion operations, not for monetary gain or because governments have tasked them with doing so, but because they want to be able to brag to their friends or boast online that they’ve hacked into and embarrassed prominent organizations.
3. Some countries’ effects:
Russia: Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has created unparalleled conditions for cyber threat activities.
Iran:. We anticipate Iranian threat actors’ continued willingness to use disruptive
and destructive cyber attacks to remain elevated, absent a significant change to
Iran’s current international isolation.
North Korea: We assess with high confidence that North Korea will continue to pursue operations that support the regime with both revenue streams and strategic intelligence.
International political and economic isolation along with public health challenges will
likely inform North Korean cyber espionage against the diplomatic, military, financial and
China: Chinese cyber espionage poses a high-frequency and high-magnitude threat to organizations globally, both in the public and private sectors
4. Mobile Workplace Trends Will Create New Blind Spots for Enterprises:
Enterprises may face new blind spots as a result of mobile workplace trends. Personal communication channels (games, LinkedIn, WhatsApp, Signal, Snapchat, and so on) will play a significantly larger part in the assault vectors designed by bad actors to target enterprises.
5. Connected Devices Will Require More Robust Security:
Hybrid and remote work gaps! For years, the number of linked IoT devices has been increasing with no indication of slowing down.
6. More attacks against non-traditional technology:
From cars to toys to smart cities. New attacks against space vehicles and drones.
7. New Crime-as-a-Service Offerings:
Crime-as-a-Service (CaaS) is the practice of experienced cybercriminals selling access to the tools and knowledge needed to execute cybercrime—in particular, it’s often used to create phishing attacks.
8. Cybersecurity “skills gap”:
The global cybersecurity workforce gap has increased by 26.2% compared to 2021, with 3.4 million more workers needed to secure assets effectively, according to the (ISC)2 2022 Cybersecurity Workforce Study
9. More Organizations Will Outsource Cybersecurity:
Cybersecurity has gotten much too complicated for corporations to handle alone. Most businesses are not cybersecurity specialists, nor do they have the capabilities or resources to run a full-fledged security operations center (SOC).
10. Metaverse crime:
The metaverse business will also experience an upsurge in cybercrime. With its potential for widespread adoption, the virtual world will almost certainly inherit the actual world’s issues.
