A prediction of the future of cybersecurity

What will it look like in 2030?

More detailed information

While 8 years may seem a long way into the future, the speed at which the industry is evolving is sure to make the next decade fly by. Predicting the future of cybersecurity is not about looking into the crystal ball. By envisioning how the industry will change in 8 years, CIO and CISO can prepare for future challenges, so they do not look back and wish they had acted in 2023.

In this presentation Marc will share his thoughts on what the future of cybersecurity may look like.

  • What cyber security threats will remain an issue? 

  • Are organisations prepared for tomorrow’s threats?

  • Highly targeted cyber attacks

  • Abuse of open-source and legitimate software and tools

  • Ongoing disinformation campaigns

  • What’s coming next for the cybersecurity industry in terms of spending evolution and cybersecurity roles?

Marc also addresses the top cyber security trends and potential threats that organisations should keep an eye on, regardless of size or industry. He hereby focuses on elements like Cybercrime-as-a-service (CaaS), Malware automation, Polymorphic malware, Third-party risks and threats, the human element, use of internet-of-things (IoT), the evolving shape of online fraud, the Role of AI in the Future of Cybersecurity, the Cybersecurity Skills Gap and Women in Cybersecurity.
