Cybercriminals in the future will begin to use artificial intelligence that can independently study security systems.
By 2024, financial losses from cyber burglaries will grow by almost 70%. According to researchers from Juniper Research, the damage will increase by an average of 11% each year, and will exceed $ 5 trillion by 2024. Last year, experts estimated the losses from cyber burglaries at $ 3 trillion. Every year, companies are increasingly dependent on the digital environment, and the damage will increase due to increased penalties from legislation for data leaks.
But not only protection methods improve over time. Analysts warn that in the future, cybercriminals will begin to use artificial intelligence that can independently study security systems. In recent years, AI technology has been actively used to protect against cyber threats.
Cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important part of corporate culture, but this trend is not common among users of computer systems. Training employees in the basics of cybersecurity will help to more effectively plan costs in this area, which, according to analysts, will grow by only 8% annually.
Experts also noted that IT companies always need to take into account the human factor, since attackers continue to actively use social engineering methods.
