Cybersecurity Trends in 2023

Cybersecurity Trends in 2023 (and beyond)

As we enter Cybersecurity Awareness Month, it’s important to stay up to date on the latest cybersecurity trends in 2023 and threats posed to your business. Here are five trends to watch in 2023:

The Five Trends:

  1. Increased use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in cybersecurity.
    With the growing amount of data being generated, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for humans to analyze and detect threats on their own. As a result, more and more cybersecurity professionals are turning to AI and machine learning to help identify and mitigate potential threats. Unfortunately, so are the bad actors.
  2. The rise of 5G networks.
    Adoption of 5G networks will bring faster speeds and increased connectivity, but it also introduces new security vulnerabilities. As more devices connect to these networks, it’s important to ensure that they are secure and that proper protocols are in place to protect against cyber threats.
  3. Growing concern over supply chain attacks.
    In recent years, there have been several high-profile supply chain attacks, where hackers target a company’s suppliers in order to gain access to the company’s systems. These types of attacks can be difficult to detect and prevent, and it’s important for companies to be aware of the potential risks and take steps to protect themselves.
  4. Increased focus on user education and awareness.
    With the proliferation of phishing attacks and other types of social engineering, it’s important for companies to educate their employees. Start with identifying threats, and what to do if one is found. Be sure to provide regular training. If you’re unable to do this, consider using a third party to help.
  5. The continued evolution of ransomware.
    Ransomware will likely continue to evolve and become more sophisticated beyond 2023. It’s important for companies to have robust backup and recovery systems in place, as well as protocols for responding to ransomware attacks. Consider immutable storage options as a fail-safe.


Overall, it’s crucial for companies to stay vigilant and proactive in the face of constantly evolving cybersecurity threats. So, stay informed and take steps to protect your business.
