Cyber warfare will be an important part of future conflicts and may even be the first strike nations make to cripple their opposition, predicts Experian PLC.
We “could see more strategic attacks from countries in conflict and global hackers who will use high-profile individuals as world leaders to spread disinformation and cause chaos,” Experian, whose U.S. headquarters are in Costa Mesa, California, said in its data breach 2023 industry forecast.
The company also predicts that the time to detect and defend against a cyber attack “will continue to be a sore spot and not improve much over the next 10 years.”
“The threat landscape is simply too large and growing faster than resources and manpower can handle,”; it says.
The report also says that our growing reliance on satellite-dependent technologies, the increase in the number of satellites and the lack of regulatory oversight means there is a “material” likelihood that satellites will be hacked, which will have a wide-ranging impact.
“Organizations with space-based assets, or even NASA, that do not support protections and remain vigilant will find themselves under attack,” it warns.
