2023 was another big year for cybersecurity news. The top cybersecurity stories included cybercriminals once again upping their game, economic headwinds taking a toll on providers and a “true bombshell” acquisition that will have a big impact on enterprise cybersecurity in 2024 and beyond.

This was the year in which artificial intelligence (AI) and cybersecurity took center stage. This includes using good AI to fight the bad guys using AI.

This was also the year in which cyberattacks racked up thousands of victims with MOVEit Transfer hacks and a ransomware attack on MGM Resorts nearly shut down a major part of the Las Vegas strip.

We have assembled our list of this year's top cybersecurity stories, those that impacted Channel Futures readers most. We present our picks in the slideshow above, starting with No. 10 and counting down to No. 1.
