CYBERCRIME AND AI: In 2024, the cybersecurity landscape is poised for a significant transformation driven by artificial intelligence (AI). This shift will see AI emerge as a dual force, aiding cybersecurity firms while empowering cybercriminals. With the advent of advanced AI, adversaries will exploit deepfakes and refine phishing techniques, posing unprecedented challenges to digital defenses. Simultaneously, cybersecurity companies are gearing up to leverage AI’s capabilities to bolster criminal detection and swiftly address vulnerabilities. The escalating zero-day vulnerabilities underscore the vital need for immediate patching, given threat actors’ exploitation of these gaps for heightened attacks. The pervasive threat of ransomware and extortion campaigns is expected to persist, compelling businesses to reinforce defenses. Supply chain attacks will continue to loom large, emphasizing the urgent necessity for robust cybersecurity measures across interconnected networks
