The Future of Secure Cloud Storage: Emerging Security Trends in 2024

2023 was a roller coaster of a year, to say the least. Financial hard times were compounded by massive security breaches that cost businesses around the world millions of dollars. We had the massive AI boom spearheaded by the viral sensation, ChatGPT, and technology took a step forward that many would not have expected for decades. It was a miraculous year, and it gives us high hopes for 2024. 

With that being said, let’s see what the next year has in store for us.


Looking back at 2023 we can see that hacktivism seems to be on the rise. We saw a number of massive hacktivist groups rise and join each other all around the globe. According to Cyberint, a threat intelligence firm, we have seen groups like SiegedSec — a Russian group seemingly responsible for cyberattacks on NATO — and Anonymous Sudan — a similar group responsible for some high-profile breaches at Riot Games and Rockstar. 

Hacktivist attacks are like any other form of activism, groups ideologically driven to wrest power away from entities they see as powerful and responsible for the conditions of the world they live in. This makes them particularly driven, and the digital nature of their attacks may have unintended consequences for the employees of their targets. 

The success of hacktivist breaches in 2023 will surely drive other groups around the world toward taking matters into their digital hands. In 2024, any organization operating on the Internet should invest in cybersecurity tools that will protect them from the next highly organized international threat.

Boosted Observability

Of course, technology continues to grow and change with time. In 2023, AI has become a much more readily available tool. In 2024, we may be able to take advantage of AI and boost the observability of our data management solutions. 

Getting a more transparent picture of the massive amount of data we’re working with at every given moment will streamline workflows, make it easier to spot data breaches in real time, and revolutionize the way we interact with a deluge of data throughout the work day. Pairing AI with the increased efficiency of edge computing in 2024 will give our cloud storage solutions and security infrastructure an incredible boost in the coming year.

AI Attackers

According to the FBI’s Internet Crimes report, nearly all cyber-attacks rely on social engineering. AI chatbots and their recent demonstration of convincing conversation show us what we can expect from the future of social engineering. 

Competent social engineers can become frightening juggernauts of information gathering with a relatively small amount of effort after setting up a chatbot that asks the right questions. This means one thing: in 2024, it is imperative to shore up our digital knowledge base. Smart password security and the ability to spot a phishing scheme will keep businesses and individuals safe and secure when AI attackers come knocking at your door.
