In the coming year, it’s important to be aware of the top cybersecurity trends. Hackers are constantly evolving their methods, so you need to stay ahead of the game. Here are three trends that you should watch out for in 2023.
5G technology is here, and hackers are taking advantage of it. In the new year, we’ll see an increase in 5G-related attacks. Attackers will use the high speeds and low latency to launch sophisticated DDoS attacks that overwhelm networks and cause disruption.
One-time Password Bypass
Hackers are finding ways to bypass two-factor authentication. They’re using phishing and other social engineering techniques to capture one-time passwords. This allows them to gain access to protected accounts without the user ever knowing.
Attacks Related to World Events
The upcoming year will see a lot of political and economic upheaval. We’ll likely also see an increase in cyber-related attacks associated with these events. Hackers use fear and insecurity to their advantage, so be on the lookout for malicious activity related to world developments.
Smishing is a type of phishing attack where attackers send malicious text messages to users. The message usually contains a link that requires the user to take some kind of action, which leads them down a malicious path. In 2021, we saw an increase in smishing attacks and this will likely continue in 2023 as well.
More Sophisticated Phishing (using AI)
Phishing attacks are becoming more and more sophisticated every day. Attackers are now using AI to automate their scams, making them harder to detect. In 2021, we saw an uptick in these types of attacks — and they’ll only get worse in the new year.
