Into the Breach Podcast: The threat landscape 2023--Top targets, top attack types, top geographies

By Mitch Mayne posted Fri March 03, 2023 12:43 PM


For over a decade, X-Force has published the IBM Security X-Force Threat Intelligence Report, and the 2023 report just came out. ICYMI, it’s a collection of an entire year’s worth of intelligence — literally billions of data points ranging from network and endpoint devices, incident response (IR) engagements, vulnerability and exploit databases, and more.

That data is then rigorously analyzed to identify how threat actors are infiltrating governments and organizations across the globe, what they’re doing once they’re on the inside, which industries and geographies are seeing the most attacks, and more.

In this episode, I’m joined by Michael Worley, one of this year’s primary authors. He talks to us about the massive scope of the data set, how it was analyzed, and how threat actors have shifted their game to bypass security measures and access victims’ most critical assets.

We’ll dig into the continuously changing cybersecurity landscape and talk about what you can do to better defend against the latest threats.

Join us, and together we’ll venture Into the Breach.
