– Global cybersecurity industry hires 3.4 million new experts to neutralize cybercriminal threats
London, January 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), a Fortune 500 leading global technology services company, predicts five ways the digital security landscape will impact lives and businesses in 2023 and beyond.
With over 3,000 experts and one of the world’s leading providers of cybersecurity solutions to help the world’s largest enterprises improve their resilience, DXC Technology is not only exposed to the evolving threat landscape, but also the opportunity to tackle them. I’m watching it.
1. The cybersecurity arms race will accelerate
Cybercriminals and cybersecurity experts are using artificial intelligence (AI) to wage an increasingly sophisticated battle of wits. For cybersecurity defense, AI has been used primarily to identify patterns of suspicious behavior. Cybersecurity staff are often overwhelmed by the volume of suspicious activity and the number of false positives.
The good news is that after 2023, we will be able to start automating AI-based security controls and response mechanisms. This allows you to respond faster and more accurately to cyberattacks, reduce potential downtime, and protect critical personal and business data.
“Although AI can automate threat detection and removal, the underlying process is based on an understanding of past activity, leading cybercriminals to come up with new types of attacks.” Mark Hughes, President of Security at DXC Technology. “Keeping pace will be difficult, especially when quantum computing comes into play in the years to come and today’s defenses can be breached in seconds.”
2. We need to be careful about who we are think We’re talking in the metaverse (while holding tight to digital wallets)
2023 will be an important year for the Metaverse as Meta, Microsoft, Virbela and others expect virtual worlds to go mainstream. However, activity in the Metaverse can raise questions about identity.how do you know you are that person think Are you talking about who they are? Perhaps digital certificates built on blockchain can help. These certificates can also be used to secure virtual transactions in the metaverse. What is clear is that as the metaverse grows, so do the risks.
3. Geopolitical cybersecurity attacks will increase, but also defensive innovation
Russian attack on Ukraine It was the starkest reminder possible that warfare is now a hybrid and the risk of geopolitically motivated cyberattacks is real. As a result, many cyber insurance policies are now being written to exclude cyber warfare, creating challenges for mitigating cyber risks.
This threat is expected to continue into 2023 amid lingering geopolitical tensions. In fact, with over 70 countries scheduled to hold government elections in 2023 (an event frequently targeted by state-sponsored attackers), 2023 will be a challenging year for cybersecurity defenses. However, we can learn from case studies such as: Ukrainian “Exemplary” defense against Russian cyberattacks.
Cybersecurity attacks target critical national infrastructure that powers our homes
If the lights go out or the gas goes off, most people are unlikely to believe it was the result of an industrial cybersecurity breach. Yes, it targets systems that control and automate factories and public infrastructure, including power plants and dams.
As geopolitical tensions continue, OT cyber threats will escalate in 2023, putting pressure on the industry to stay ahead by embedding cybersecurity protections throughout its operations.
Career Opportunities in Cybersecurity Expand
It is estimated that there is a global shortage of about 3.4 million cybersecurity workers. This number is likely to increase as threats from advanced technologies increase.
The cyber skills gap presents career opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds. For example, in the UK there are currently about 1,000 cybersecurity opportunities for graduates listed on GradCracker’s career portal. But graduates aren’t the only ones who can benefit. Many companies offer opportunities for people to undergo cybersecurity retraining.
“The inclusivity of the cybersecurity space extends to neurodiversity,” he added. Mark Hughes“For example, DXC’s Dandelion Program helps individuals with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and other neurological conditions build careers in IT that include cybersecurity. brings career opportunities to people of all backgrounds.”
Cyber threats will continue to increase in speed and complexity in 2023 and beyond, but so will the ability to apply the latest technologies, approaches, and talent to combat them. “The cybersecurity arms race is an apt analogy. The right side must win,” it concluded. Mark Hughes.
