We have read the “Leadership Trends and Emerging Technologies Predictions 2023” report published by Splunk. This report highlights some key trends that businesses should be aware of in the coming years.

We believe that it is crucial for businesses to pay attention to these trends and take proactive steps to protect themselves from cyber threats and recommend that businesses take a holistic approach to cloud security. This means implementing appropriate security controls across the entire cloud infrastructure, including network security, access management, and data encryption.

One of the key trends highlighted in the report is the increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in cyber security. AI and ML technologies are becoming more sophisticated, and this is leading to the development of new and innovative ways to detect and respond to cyber-attacks. However, as the report notes, AI and ML are not a silver bullet when it comes to cyber security. These technologies are only as effective as the data that is used to train them. It is therefore important for businesses to ensure that they are collecting and analyzing high-quality data to get the best results from their AI and ML systems. While the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning in cyber security is touted as a game-changer, businesses should not rely solely on these technologies. They should remember that cyber criminals are also using AI and ML to enhance their attacks, making it a never-ending arms race. Therefore, businesses should supplement these technologies with other security measures, such as multi-factor authentication and regular security assessments.

Another trend highlighted in the report is the increasing use of cloud computing and cloud-based applications. This trend has many benefits for businesses, including increased flexibility and scalability, but it also introduces new security challenges. The report mentions the increasing use of cloud computing and cloud-based applications as a trend that will continue in the future. While this is true, businesses should not underestimate the risks associated with cloud-based systems. For example, if not configured properly, cloud-based systems can be susceptible to data breaches and other cyber-attacks. It is crucial for businesses to carry out regular assessments and audits to ensure that their cloud infrastructure is secure.

The report also highlights the growing threat posed by insider threats. This is a particularly challenging area of cyber security, as insider threats can be difficult to detect and may go unnoticed for long periods of time. Many businesses are already aware of this issue. However, what the report fails to mention is that the root cause of insider threats can be the result of inadequate security policies and poor employee management. To address this issue, businesses must develop and enforce a robust security policy, and also monitor and train their employees on the importance of cybersecurity best practices.

While the “Future Executive Predictions 2023” report provides useful insights into cyber security trends, businesses must be careful not to overlook the existing and emerging risks in their security posture. Aliado Solutions will continue to urge and motivate our clients to remain vigilant, prioritize their security initiatives, and implement a comprehensive security program that is tailored to their specific needs.
