Mandiant is thinking about the future! We know that learning from history is only half the battle—if we want to stay ahead of attackers, we need to think about and plan for the likeliest scenarios in the coming year. Just recently Sandra Joyce, EVP, Global Intel & Advanced Practices, shared her thoughts on what she expects to see in 2022.

To keep the conversation going, we asked Charles Carmakal, Mandiant SVP and CTO, to provide his perspective on the coming year. Similar to Sandra, Charles is also thinking about ransomware and multifaceted extortion. Charles suspects that we will see continued efforts by governments to disrupt operations, and that recent UNC2452 activity demonstrate an increasing level of threat actor sophistication. Now working more remotely than ever before, defenders have to rise to the occasion if they want to keep up.
