Despite the CISO’s or an expert team’s best efforts, cybersecurity is getting worse every year. According to a report by ThoughtLabOpen’s new window, there will be a 15.1% increase in cyberattacks and data breaches in 2023 compared to the previous year. More advanced ransomware is expected to push the business toward more effective cybersecurity in 2023, according to experts. Additionally, 29% of CEOs/CISOs and 40% of Chief Security Officers admit that their companies are unprepared for a rapidly shifting threat and cybersecurity landscape.
Improved cybersecurity predictions for businesses in 2023
Zero-trust vendor transparency gets better
Zero trust has been obscured by uncertainty since the beginning, particularly around whether it is or isn’t a product. It might become clear by 2023. According to Mike Spanbauer, senior director and technology advocate at networking company Juniper Networks, we’ll particularly notice marketing that offers clarity into vendor offerings.
Security is more in line with business needs.
Security is frequently viewed as a commercial barrier as well as a cost centre, even unintentionally. For instance, a security team might install a web application firewall to stop harmful traffic, but it might also prevent a third-party partner from connecting to the company network for work-related reasons.
Security cannot be siloed in 2023. Security teams must comprehend how the business operates and how it may contribute to its success.
Workforce reductions lead to an attack
If they haven’t already, workforce reductions are imminent, and attackers are prepared to exploit any openings they may leave behind. Attackers will be aware of firms going through restructuring in 2023, as well as the potential security risks that layoffs pose.
Eventually, cyber-physical security reaches zero trust
Zero trust is popular, but as of 2022, it hasn’t been applied to operational technology or cyber-physical systems (OT). According to Gartner analyst Katell Thielemann, this will continue in 2023. She stated that the following factors prevent zero trust from naturally operating in cyber-physical systems:
- Authentication features are frequently missing from older systems.
- For maintenance and upgrades, vendors may need to access cyber-physical systems remotely.
- Implicit trust zones in industrial plants already exist and are tough to change.
A business sues a provider of hostile security products
Many well-known tools, such as Metasploit and Mimikatz, are employed both by threat actors and ethical hackers for nefarious purposes. Because of this, Forrester analyst Heidi Shey predicted that a company will sue a vendor of offensive security tools in 2023. According to her, organizations and governments would put pressure on providers to prevent the distribution of similar new tools to hackers, risking legal action in the event of a data breach.
The government of India takes necessary steps toward cyber security.
According to Honourable PM Narendra Modi, the government will take significant steps toward security. Digital immune systems are expected to deliver resilience and mitigate security and operational risks in 2023, according to Gartner.
Technology companies will explore government contracts in 2023. However, it is essential to create necessary safe software since they will merge with the public sector and recognize these governmental regulations as standard.
