Looking Forward to More Cybersecurity Discussions in 2023

As we have seen this past year, security and risk management is no longer considered ‘nice to have’ features of your cybersecurity strategy. Instead, cyber risk management has evolved into a board-level issue for organizations. With cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated and common, new laws and regulations are being passed to protect customer data, and organizations are putting cybersecurity at the core of their decisions. In the following year and beyond, we anticipate more organizations decentralizing, which changes the threat landscape and protection.
