As we begin 2022, the cost, sophistication, and lethality of cyber-breaches continues to rise. Threat actors, especially state-sponsored, and criminal enterprises are taking advantage of the expanding cyber-attack surface by using their resources to employ more sophisticated means for discovering target vulnerabilities, automating phishing, and finding new deceptive paths for infiltrating malware. This presentation will explore some of the more compelling trends and threats in the cybers ecosystem, the impact of emerging technologies, and potential strategies for mitigation.
