Cybersecurity in 2023

Cybersecurity has taken a leading role in companies’ digital processes and technology adoption. Its importance to protect organizations in high-risk environments will continue to be a priority. And efforts will be made to respond effectively to strategic escalations by cybercriminals. Along with this panorama, the cybersecurity industry expects the following behaviors for next year.

“Ransomware, phishing, mobile devices and alternative authentications will be in the focus of companies to protect themselves from cyberattacks.”

Possible trends for Cybersecurity the next 2023

according to Netskope experts:

  1. Extortion techniques will continue to increase.
  2. Ransomware is not going anywhere.
  3. OAuth abuse and phishing operations will go further and increase in sophistication to circumvent Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).
  4. Greater number of incidents.

NordPass shared a report with the most used passwords by people globally. Based on the above, the cybersecurity company ESET explained that the data reveals people’s current level of maturity in a sensitive aspect.

The study shows that users continue to choose weak, predictable, and easy-to-guess passwords to protect their email accounts, social networks, or other online services.

The report prepared by Nordpass exposes the 200 most common passwords and is born from the analysis of a 3TB database that contains keys that were exposed in security incidents.

By 2022, the password “123456” is no longer the most used. But its place was taken by another password that is constantly mentioned in this report: “password”.

Awareness and education in cybersecurity will be what makes the difference so that the statistics of cyber attacks go down. Let’s hope that, despite the predictions that hackers are always innovating tricks to steal user information, it seems that it is going to increase. Users also do their part and use the tools provided by developers to save their data, such as two-factor authentication.

What do you think could be other security measures that can be taken to save our passwords from attacks?
