What is the biggest cybersecurity threat for companies in 2023?

The biggest threat in cybersecurity in 2023 remains credential theft. Compromised accounts are the preferred vector for all but the most advanced cyber attacks. Cyber criminals have become more professional than ever, and they run businesses that try to make money. Ransomware, extortion, or a combination of the two have proven effective ways to make money. However, if accounts are adequately protected, an attack resulting in extortion is far more difficult to pursue. Lots of threat actors will move on to easier targets.

For organisations to counter these threats, they more than ever must invest in awareness and training. People often are the weakest link in the security chain.
