A Deeper Discussion About M-Trends 2020, Part One

FireEye released M-Trends 2020 earlier this year to provide visibility into frontline investigations of the most interesting and impactful cyber attacks of the year. In this first episode of our two-part M-Trends 2020 podcast, I discuss the report with Jurgen Kutscher, EVP of Mandiant Services Delivery.

We begin the episode by highlighting the key themes from M-Trends 2020, such as dwell time and the continued exploitation of legitimate credentials. Jurgen discusses the decrease in dwell time and whether it’s due to organizations getting better at detections or the changing nature of attacks. You’ll also hear about trends in cloud security and recommendations for the healthcare industry when it comes to cloud, as well as insights into compromise detection by third parties.

Listen to the podcast today to dive into M-Trends 2020, and then check out part two where we discuss insider threats, ransomware, and Jurgen’s recommendations for the year ahead.
