Cybersecurity in 2024: Expert Predictions You Need to Know || Razorthorn Security

Welcome to Razorwire, the podcast for all things cybersecurity and information security. I'm your host, Jim, and today we have a thought-provoking discussion with industry experts Iain Pye and Chris Dawson about emerging cybersecurity threats and trends to watch out for in 2024.

In this episode, we dive into three key talking points that are essential for cybersecurity professionals to listen in on:

The accelerating risk of ransomware and data breaches, including the increasing need for continuous security testing and the challenges of balancing security tool costs with limited budgets and the speed required to adapt.

The use, impact and potential threats of artificial intelligence on major global events including the elections coming up in 2024, in the context of societal and political manipulation, as well as the rising risks of identity theft, sophisticated disinformation and deep fake technology.

The importance of operational resilience plans, the challenges of compliance and auditing processes, and the need for improved cybersecurity standards and training.

Tune in to gain insights from leading experts in the field on how organisations can prepare for the cybersecurity challenges of 2024.

"What's your operational resiliency plan? How is your organisation going to have to learn the hard truths? Take a really hard look at what you're doing and go: if that falls over or it gets breached, can we keep running our business?"
