2024 Cybersecurity Forecast with Filestack Virus Detection

Cybersecurity threats continue to grow. In 2023, we saw a rise in advanced cyber-attacks such as AI-driven phishing, deepfake frauds, and extensive data breaches, with over 15 billion records compromised last year. Industries ranging from education to healthcare are increasingly targeted, highlighting the critical need for robust virus detection measures.

The Threat of Viruses Introduced into an Organization’s Workflow

Businesses face cybersecurity risks through media that are uploaded and shared. A single infected file can jeopardize the entire organization, spreading malware across networks and potentially leading to significant operational disruptions.

In 2023, the average cost of a cybersecurity breach reached $165 per compromised record, with total costs of significant incidents on average reached approximately $4.45 million globally. Organizations can mitigate these risks by implementing strong preventative measures, such as comprehensive virus scanning at the point of upload. Filestack’s virus detection tools are essential in this process.
