Can you really forecast threats? Won’t the threat actors ultimately do whatever they want?
How can clients use the forecast? Or as Tim would say it, what gets better once you read it?
What is the threat forecast for cloud environments? It says “Cyber attacks targeting hybrid and multi-cloud environments will mature and become more impactful“ - what does it mean?
Of course AI makes an appearance as well: “LLMs and other gen AI tools will likely be developed and offered as a service to assist attackers with target compromises.” Do we really expect attacker-run LLM SaaS? What models will they use? Will it be good?
There are a number of significant elections scheduled for 2024, are there implications for cloud security?
Based on the threat information, tell me about something that is going well, what will get better in 2024?
