Ringing the Changes: Brighter times ahead for cyber security

To all our readers, welcome to 2021, and the 10th edition of The Vision!

With the roller-coaster of 2020 behind us, many security teams will be seeking to improve their security operations for the coming year. Following a little cautious optimism that the effects of the global pandemic will start to abate as the vaccine rolls out, we are also starting to witness better times ahead for the cyber security sector. The cyber security skills gap still exists, but newly released functionality in Mandiant Advantage can now deliver game-changing actionable intelligence to put cyber criminals on notice.

In addition to improvements in threat intelligence, we also take a closer look at Security Validation; how it is transforming cyber security operations by delivering empirical evidence on the efficacy of security controls. It includes methodologies for teams to introduce continuous security validation to their security programs. 

This edition also reveals more about how Mandiant graduates threat actors, including an introduction to “UNCs” and the recently announced UNC2452; the uncategorized threat actor associated with the recent multi-industry breach uncovered by FireEye. FireEye Chat reports on the latest ransomware threat intelligence from the frontlines, arming every team with critical information needed to defend their environments.
