AI in Workplace Content Creation:
AI will play a significant role in content creation in 2024. Business owners must pay close attention and create sound AI policies that protect the organization from copyright claims, misinformation, and the loss of private data.
AI will be used to generate not only written content, but also music and art. As AI is a predictive learning model, it may base its output on parts of copyrighted materials, posing a risk for content that’s posted without oversight.
You can expect employees to use AI more and more to process workloads and increase efficiency, sometimes without the knowledge or oversight of their employer (a.k.a. Shadow IT).
Cyber Resilience Front and Center:
Cyber resilience, which goes beyond cybersecurity, will be under a magnifying glass in 2024, as 50% of businesses have been victims of a successful cyber attack since the start of COVID, according to Forbes (Bernard Marr, Sept 11, 2023).
We have modified our cybersecurity training in response, creating a courseware program designed around continuous threat exposure management. Our program aims to reduce risk by elevating the cyber defense capabilities of what is most often targeted by hackers: end users with low cybersecurity awareness and skills.
Intelligent applications will begin to appear more often in 2024. These applications will automate responses based on predictive learning models. From cyber defenses to workflows, intelligent applications will begin to have an impact on business productivity in the coming years.
War of the Machines:
In what seems like a bad sci-fi movie about warring robots, AI will make its presence known in cyber defenses as well as cyber-crime. Many cybersecurity systems will use machine learning to identify and neutralize cyber crime.
On the flip side, natural learning models designed by adversaries (e.g., Worm-GPT) are countering those effects by allowing hackers to craft well-designed spear phishing emails that are difficult to discern. In addition, AI will be used more often to conduct deep fake voice-mail social engineering attacks known as vishing, as well as in disinformation.
