Forecasts on Cyber Security for 2024 highlight a rapidly evolving landscape, with new challenges and emerging trends.
Below, five of the major trends characterizing the cybersecurity sector throughout the year are explored.
Top 5 Cyber Security Trends
- Growing Importance of Cyber Resilience
Cyber resilience becomes crucial in 2024, with an emphasis on organizations’ ability to anticipate, withstand, recover from, and adapt to increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyber incidents.
The NIS2 Directive will reshape the European Cyber Security landscape by requiring companies to adopt measures to ensure greater resilience against cyber attacks.
2. Evolution and Diversification of Cyber Threats
Cyber threats continue to evolve, with attackers gaining access to new resources, such as artificial intelligence (AI), to make their attacks more sophisticated.
The evolution of APT operations is anticipated, along with a diversification of targets and strategies by cybercrime groups.
3. Adoption of Generative Artificial Intelligence
Generative artificial intelligence will be used to continuously monitor a company’s network and systems, enhancing the ability to detect and respond to attacks in real-time.
However, this technology also presents new challenges, as attackers can leverage it to enhance the quality of phishing attacks or create malware.
4. Internet of Things (IoT) Security
With the expansion of IoT, the security of these devices becomes a priority. In 2024, the focus will be on improving IoT security through the development of more robust and standardized security protocols, thus addressing the challenges posed by the diversity and ubiquity of IoT devices.
5. Adoption of the Zero Trust Model
The Zero Trust model gains ground as a security approach, with increased emphasis on continuous verification and no implicit trust, even within the corporate network.
This approach is particularly effective in mitigating the risks posed by insider threats and the adoption of Cloud services and remote work models.
In conclusion, 2024 is shaping up to be a year of significant challenges and changes in the field of cybersecurity.
Organizations will need to quickly adapt to these emerging trends, implementing advanced security strategies and resilience to protect themselves from evolving threats.
