Mandiant Cyber Security Forecast 2023

November 2, 2022

Written by: Adam Greenberg


Defenders must always be ready for the unexpected—everything from chasing down an alert to containing a compromise. In the cyber security realm, it’s impossible to predict what we will experience day after day. However, that doesn’t mean we cannot be ready for the threats that matter most. Organizations can always improve their preparedness and readiness, and part of that involves exploring the trends we are starting to see now so we are ready for them in the year ahead.

To help us clear up some of the fog surrounding 2023, we turned to Mandiant leaders and experts. We already heard from Mandiant leaders Sandra Joyce, Head of Global Intelligence, and Charles Carmakal, Consulting CTO, on what they are expecting as we move into the new year.

Sandra and Charles have even more to share in our report, Mandiant Cyber Security Forecast 2023, which includes feedback from several other Mandiant experts across our intelligence, consulting, and other functions, as well as Phil Venables, CISO for Google Cloud.

Read the report today to learn about what we expect to see in 2023, including:

  • More attacks by non-organized and non-nation state actors who are younger and less motivated by financial gain.
  • More extortion with aggressive tactics, and possibly more targeting of Europe over the U.S. with ransomware.
  • Increased information operations, destructive attacks and more from The Big Four: Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea.
  • Organizations moving towards password-less authentication, creating new opportunities for attackers and new challenges for defenders.
  • Trends specific to the APJ and EMEA regions such as targeting by Russia.

A big part of any cyber security program is knowledge, and we hope the insights shared in this report will help organizations be ready for the threats and other cyber trends that may affect them in 2023.
