Generative AI and culture-based programs to shape cybersecurity in 2024

1 min read


Key points:

  • Generative AI is set to revolutionize cybersecurity in 2024, with tools delivering real risk-management outcomes by 2025.
  • Culture-based security programs are gaining traction, with a focus on fostering and embedding secure behaviors across organizations.

In 2024, Gartner predicts that generative AI will finally emerge as a game-changer in cybersecurity, leading to real risk-management outcomes by 2025. Despite the promises made by vendors about AI’s benefits, cybersecurity leaders are still struggling to fully leverage this technology due to the lack of proven best practices. CISOs are both skeptical and hopeful about the potential of generative AI to enhance defensive capabilities and operational efficiency in the security realm.

Culture-based security programs are also on the rise, with CISOs increasingly adopting security behavior and culture programs (SBCPs) to promote secure behaviors and work practices across organizations. Gartner’s PIPE framework guides organizations in implementing practices that focus on organizational change management, human-centric design practices, and security coaching to enhance cybersecurity.

Third-party risk management, cybersecurity reskilling, continuous threat exposure management (CTEM), and evolving identity access management (IAM) are identified as key trends that will shape cybersecurity in 2024. By prioritizing CTEM and enhancing IAM practices, organizations can better assess and manage their exposure to threats, leading to a reduction in breaches and improved security posture.
