COSTA MESA, Calif., Jan. 25, 2024 – While tried and true tactics like phishing and malware are here to stay, there are always new approaches to watch out for in the cybersecurity space. Experian’s 11th annual Data Breach Industry Forecast includes six predictions for 2024 that focuses a global lens on what savvy moves cybercriminals from near and far will potentially make to penetrate organizations and reap rewards.
While 2023 was a “successful” year for bad actors, we may see the following emerge to shake up the cyber landscape even more this year:
“Cybercriminals are continually working smarter not harder,” said Michael Bruemmer, vice president, Global Data Breach Resolution at Experian. “They are leveraging new technologies like artificial intelligence and applying their talents in different ways to be more strategic and stay a step ahead. Organizations should not ignore even the slightest security abnormalities and be more aware of what global interests may make them a target.”

“Today, perpetrators can come from anywhere in the world and bring with them robust resources and expertise,” added Jim Steven, Head of Crisis and Data Response Services at Experian Global Data Breach Resolution in the United Kingdom. “There are many global crime syndicates and nation-backed operations, so companies need to invest in sophisticated prevention and response methods to protect themselves.”
