Be aware of these cyber security topics in 2024 to secure your digital workplace successfully.

 

As our calendars have turned to 2024, we all look forward to what exciting things the new year will bring us. This is the year when an immortal alien from the planet Zeist will visit us and fix our ozone layer… at least according to the movie Highlander II, which is set in 2024. Disregarding bad movie sequels, 2024 promises to bring many new changes to the table. This is especially true in the world of cyber security. Here, we look at four subjects every IT specialist needs to have on their radar for the coming months. 

1. The rise of generative AI

While 2023 was the breakout year for AI, it will become more prominent this year. In terms of IT security, there are two sides to the AI-coin. 

Important

On the negative side, the risks and threats will evolve quicker than ever. Phishing attempts will get much smarter and on a much larger scale. This will make employee training in security and awareness a hot topic for 2024.

Stats

On the positive side, generative AI will also bring advancements in threat detection and prediction. At the same time, organizations will continue using AI to improve their internal business functions.

An interesting security year ahead of us

To sum it all up. Generative AI will play an increasingly more prominent role in our lives. That applies both to potential risks and potential rewards. 

That means foundational security will become even more important for all organizations, which the NIS2 directive underlines. Secure authentication and modern IAM will become more critical. 

This is where we at Pointsharp can help you implement secure and user-friendly solutions to give you and your users access to a safe and modern digital workplace that complies with the latest regulations. 

Of course, these were only four topics we will look back at when entering 2025. Being prepared for known and upcoming threats and new regulations will help you come out on top of another year. 

Especially since we will have to fight back against the kaiju invasion, as we learned in the movie Pacific Rim, set in 2025.
