The IT threat situation will continue to worsen in 2023. The reason for this is the progressive professionalisation of the cyber crime scene. Cyber criminals are increasingly abusing authorised applications, such as administrator tools, or manipulating users by means of digital scams targeting the elderly.

High energy costs and inflation mean that shoppers have to pay extra close attention to price. This makes them even more susceptible to online fraud in the pre-Christmas rush.
