1 min read


  • Top concerns for CISOs shared by Mandiant leaders include increasing zero days, evolving cyber extortion tactics, and threat actors “living off the land.”
  • Artificial intelligence is currently in favor of defense, with attackers not yet utilizing AI extensively.

A trio of Mandiant leaders discussed the top cyber concerns keeping CISOs up at night at the Google Cloud’s Next technology conference. Kevin Mandia, Sandra Joyce, and Jurgen Kutscher highlighted the rising number and sophistication of zero-day attacks, the shift towards physical threats in cyber extortion, and the stealthy tactics of threat actors “living off the land.” While artificial intelligence currently favors defense, the executives noted the threat posed by outdated multifactor authentication tools and the growing sophistication of supply chain attacks. Additionally, burnout among cyber defenders and the impact of cyber threats that transcend traditional cyber boundaries were highlighted as key concerns in the ever-evolving cyber threat landscape.
