Trends in Cybersecurity

Partnerships Between Criminal Groups, Geopolitics, Economic Pressures, and AI Combine to Reshape and Create New Collaborative Forces in the Coming Year and Beyond


Key Trends:


Tel Aviv, Israel, November 15, 2022 Cybersixgill, the global cyber threat intelligence data provider, announced today the 2023 trends that will significantly impact cybersecurity and reshape the threat landscape. According to the company’s threat research experts, combining global geopolitical forces, economic pressures, and AI creates new opportunities for cyber attacks and alliances among threat groups that create greater challenges for organizations in taking proactive cybersecurity measures. While the western world struggles with rising grocery bills and gas prices, the economy of the dark web–the digital black market–is chugging along as usual. 


What is unique about the world we are in now – is that it is not just increasingly sophisticated technology escalating cyber conflicts – but the changing vectors of motivations and new alliances among protagonists and antagonists. With an expanding attack surface and emerging threats whose targets stem from ideological and financial motivations, cyber warfare is becoming increasingly complex as it stretches across global geographies. Furthermore, government organizations and businesses face limited talent resources and budgets to proactively prevent attacks, forcing them to do less with more. These factors drive a greater reliance on increasingly sophisticated tools such as ML and AI.


Let’s take a closer look at 2023 Trends according to Cybersixgill.


TREND #1: The rise of new threat actors – ‘Quasi-APTs” and state-sponsored threat actors- presents significant risks to global governments, business organizations, and individuals.  



TREND #2: Artificial Intelligence (AI) will play an increasingly important role on both sides of the cyberwar battlefield – as threat actors access malicious AI and organizations move to more proactive and preemptive cybersecurity strategies.

Trend #3: New attack surfaces arise in the ePay space (ApplePay, Shopify, Venmo, Paypal, etc.) 


TREND #4: In 2023, disparities will emerge in cybersecurity capabilities between private and public organizations versus the federal government and across geographies.


Trend #5: CISOs will increasingly change how they approach cybersecurity concerning talent, budgets, and strategies for personal career protection and organizational security.
