CybSafe’s 2023 security awareness predictions
An expert-led analysis of cybersecurity threats and trends.
Another year, another series of year-end round-ups and predictions from industry voices. The truth is, what 2023 has in store for us is anyone’s guess—but we’re here to make an educated one.
The rapidly changing threat landscape will drive policy makers to reconsider legislation and guidance—something the Analysts have been predicting, and calling for.
The Analysts will keep pushing organizations towards more holistic ways to manage behavioral risk.
And cyber insurers will respond by; partnering with vendors to help their customers manage risk; and by refining policy-payout terms, to help themselves.
But what does this mean for you, and your organization?
