Predictions in the world of cyber for 2023 (Forbes)

2022 has been another year of high-profile data breaches, mirroring the years before in the growing number and sophistication of cyber threats.

One of the key factors in the continual rise of cyber-attacks is due to the growth of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence sector.

We are currently in a disruptive era of technological advancement labelled The Fourth Industrial Era. It is characterized by exponential connectivity of people and devices and involves the meshing of physical, digital, and biological worlds. This includes a multitude of innovative technologies (among others) such as artificial intelligence (AI) & machine learning (ML), robotics, sensors, 5G nanotechnologies, biotech, blockchain, and quantum.

The cyber-attack surface has significantly worsened in 2022 because of the growth of connectivity. Covid 19 and remote work have contributed exponentially to this expansion via home offices. The advent of emerging and fused technologies 5G, IoT and Supply Chain security pose significant challenges.

Threat actors, especially state-sponsored, and criminal enterprises are becoming more sophisticated by searching for vulnerabilities and infiltrating malware by adapting (and automating) enabling machine learning, deep learning, artificial intelligence, and other analytic tools.

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia ― Top defense officials in Europe say arms shortages among Ukraine’s Western allies are forcing difficult conversations about how to balance support for Ukraine with concerns Russia may target them next.

NATO members that have sent billions of dollars worth of weapons and equipment are discussing what stockpile levels they need to meet their obligations under the mutual defense treaty. Decisions facing them now could have consequences for their their own security and for Ukraine, in its fight to repel Russia’s nine-month-old invasion.
