2022 was the year when what didn’t happen was more interesting than what did happen. Despite the Russian invasion of Ukraine, widespread cyber attacks outside of the immediate combat zone did not materialize. Although Log4j was a serious vulnerability, few intrusions or attacks have been blamed on it. High profile ransomware events were fewer than in 2021, and the US midterm elections were quiet from a cyber stand point. Clearly, though, the bad guys haven’t given up or decided to become model citizens. Plenty of malicious activity continued to occur; it just wasn’t what we expected.
Join Joe Chen, Michael Daniel, Dorit Dor, and John Petrie as they discuss what did and didn’t happen in 2022 from a cybersecurity perspective, and what these trends mean for 2023.
