2024 Cyber risk predictions

What lies ahead for the industry?

This year, we’re closely watching how the courts will respond to a recent spate of generative artificial intelligence (AI) and privacy-related litigation, evaluating how different global markets will respond to regulatory changes and thinking about how cybercriminals will evolve their tactics. And, of course, we’re preparing for the myriad ways all of these emerging trends will impact businesses.

At the beginning of 2023, we predicted that greater incident complexity, class actions for cyber extortion and increased use of security measures like multi-factor authentication (MFA) would be the big themes –all of which did indeed bear out over the course of the year.

Will our 2024 predictions be equally prescient? That remains to be seen. But regardless of how things unfold, we will be here to track the trends, share our insights and help our broker and client partners stay informed so that you can make the very best cyber security decisions possible. Thanks for being with us for the journey.
