This week’s episode of the Threat Trends series is the final episode of 2022 for The Defender’s Advantage Podcast. To wrap up our year and provide a glimpse into what we can expect from 2023, Sandra Joyce, VP of Mandiant Intelligence, joins host Luke McNamara for a discussion on some of the highlights from the past year. 

Sandra chats through aspects of the Russian invasion on Ukraine, activity from the DRAGONBRIDGE IO campaign, and Mandiant’s graduation of APT42. She also discusses the evolution of ransomware and the possibility of threat actors targeting countries with ransomware—as we saw in Albania—could be a trend we continue to see in 2023. Additional trends Sandra mentions include the close association of hacktivist activity with APT activity and North Korea’s continued interest in cryptocurrency.
