A broadened attack surface, weaponization of new technologies, and the industrialization of e-crime continue to shape the modern threat landscape – and the ways defenders must fight back.
The goal of modern attackers is to execute integrity and destructive attacks that distort digital reality, be it via business communication compromise, the manipulation of time and/or data, or deepfakes. Worse, doing so to colonize one victim’s infrastructure is now often just the beginning. The next step is to use that infrastructure, such as a cloud network, to launch attacks on others.
