Let’s talk about two things that have been making waves this year: AI, and cyber threats. In fact, AI has enabled a big change in the way cyber criminals are targeting businesses like yours.
Typically, the summer months see a dip in hacking attempts and malware scams. Because even cyber criminals need a holiday.
But 2023 has bucked this trend dramatically. According to a report from Avast, cyber attacks spiked during July and August, with their tools blocking over a billion attacks each month – that’s a new record.
AI has made these attacks easier to execute and more potent. It’s a game-changer, not just for us but for cyber criminals too.
But don’t let this put you off AI. It’s still an incredible tool that’s revolutionising our world. What we need to do is stay informed and vigilant.
