Physical security threats in 2023, and its AI tech-based Solutions

Physical security threats in 2023, and its AI technology-based Solutions

Technology will play an increasingly important role in our lives, and with it will come an increase in the number and sophistication of security threats. Individuals, organisations, and even entire countries can suffer significant harm as a result of physical security threats. In this article, we will look at four physical security threats in 2023, as well as the AI and technology-based solutions that can help mitigate these risks.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or Drones

Drones have become a growing source of concern in recent years due to their potential for malicious use, such as smuggling contraband into prisons or spying on individuals or organisations. The threat posed by UAVs is expected to grow in 2023 as the technology evolves and becomes more widely available. Anti-drone systems, which use technology such as radio frequency jamming and GPS spoofing to prevent drones from flying in restricted airspace, are one solution to this problem. Another option is to use AI-powered drones to detect and intercept rogue drones before escorting them to a safe landing zone. These AI-powered drones can be programmed to operate autonomously, without human intervention, and can even be used for surveillance.

Physical Intrusion

Physical Physical intrusion, such as break-ins and theft, remains a major threat to both individuals and organisations. Physical security systems are expected to become more sophisticated in 2023, incorporating AI and machine learning algorithms to detect and respond to intrusions. AI-powered surveillance cameras, for example, can be programmed to detect unusual activity, such as a person entering a restricted area, and immediately alert security personnel. Furthermore, artificial intelligence-powered access control systems can be used to identify and authenticate individuals before granting them access to secure areas, reducing the risk of unauthorised intrusion.


Carjackings, or the theft of vehicles by force, remain a major issue in many parts of the world. Carjackings are expected to become more common in 2023 as vehicle technology evolves, making it easier for thieves to steal cars.

The use of AI-powered security systems in vehicles, such as automated theft prevention systems that can detect and prevent carjackings before they occur, is one solution to this problem. These systems can use technologies like GPS tracking, facial recognition, and biometric authentication to identify and authenticate the driver, as well as sound an alarm if an unauthorised person tries to steal the vehicle.


Physical system cyberattacks, such as those used in critical infrastructure and industrial control systems, are becoming more common and can have serious consequences. The threat of these attacks is expected to grow in 2023 as hackers become more sophisticated and discover new ways to exploit vulnerabilities in physical systems.

One solution to this problem is to use AI-powered security systems that can detect and respond to cyberattacks in real-time by leveraging technologies such as machine learning algorithms and behavioural analysis. These systems can be programmed to detect anomalies and potential threats automatically and to sound an alarm or take other defensive measures to prevent the attack from succeeding.
