Will Cyber PMCs Rise in 2023?
One of my cybersecurity predictions for 2023 is the rise of cyber Private Military Companies (PMC) to specialize in cyberattacks.
One of the most famous PMCs currently in the news is the Russian Wagner group that is fighting for Russia on the ground against Ukraine. I predict by the end of 2023 we will see similarly formal organizations, fielding cyber warriors, to service the lucrative cyber-offensive market. The discipline, focus, and access to nation-state resources will make Cyber PMCs a serious threat to global cybersecurity.
So, get ready for cyber PMCs in the future!
