Commerical security predictions_web header.png



It’s an understatement to say that commercial security is constantly evolving

As you would expect, the development of technology plays a huge part in this, as businesses look for new and sophisticated solutions to protect their assets. So, we thought we would offer our ten predictions for what 2024 will bring.


Increased Adoption of AI and Machine Learning

AI and machine learning technologies will continue to play a significant role in commercial security. This includes the use of advanced analytics to detect anomalies, predictive modelling for threat assessment, and automation of security processes.

Integration of Physical and Cybersecurity

As cyber threats become more sophisticated, there will be a growing trend towards integrating physical and cybersecurity measures. This might involve leveraging technologies such as IoT devices, biometrics, and access control systems to provide comprehensive security solutions.


Rise of Biometric Authentication

Biometric authentication methods like fingerprint scanning, facial recognition, and iris scanning will become more prevalent in commercial security systems. These methods offer enhanced security compared to traditional password-based systems.


Focus on Privacy and Data Protection

With increasing concerns about privacy and data protection, there will be a greater emphasis on implementing security measures that comply with regulations such as GDPR and CCPA. This includes encryption of sensitive data, secure storage practices, and transparent data handling policies.


IoT Integration

We predict that the Internet of Things (IoT) will play an increasingly significant role in commercial security. IoT devices such as smart cameras, sensors, and access control systems will provide real-time data and automation, allowing for more proactive and effective security measures.


Continued Emphasis on Cloud Security

With more businesses adopting cloud-based services, there will be a continued emphasis on cloud security measures such as encryption, multi-factor authentication, and intrusion detection systems to protect sensitive data stored in the cloud.


Expansion of Security as a Service (SaaS)

The Security as a Service model will continue to gain traction, offering businesses scalable and cost-effective security solutions. This includes services such as managed detection and response, threat intelligence, and security monitoring.


Enhanced Physical Security Measures

In response to evolving threats such as terrorism and workplace violence, there will be an increased focus on enhancing physical security measures in commercial environments. This may involve the deployment of surveillance cameras, access control systems, and perimeter security solutions.


Collaboration and Information Sharing

Businesses will increasingly collaborate and share threat intelligence with each other and with government agencies to better defend against cyber threats and other security risks.


Employee Training and Awareness Programs

Recognising that human error is often a weak link in security, there will be a greater emphasis on continuous employee training and awareness programs to educate staff about cybersecurity best practices and how to recognise and respond to security threats.
