In 2023 a set of threats will coalesce, accelerated by global events and amplified by a misguided belief in the power of technology. The information security function will find itself at a tipping point as it struggles to demonstrate its worth but, by taking stock and steering a different course, it will be able to re-establish its role as an enabler in a very different world.

Aimed at CISOs, senior leaders and risk executives, the Threat Horizon 2023 executive summary offers a concise overview of the report findings and identifies nine future threats to information security grouped within three key themes:

  1. Machines seize control
  2. Identity is weaponised
  3. Security fails in a brave new world.
