Specific Findings:   

                                                                                        

  • Major AI-powered cyber event will occur in H2 of 2023; AI-based cyber threat modeling is yet to keep up with the type of AI-powered threats that are emerging in the wild
  • Unsecured OT networks are accessible through the internet: open ports connected to OT networks are easily discoverable, accessible, and scannable from the web
  • Healthcare and education entities are being targeted by rookie hackers for training purposes
  • Hackers are now deploying newer models to mop up revenue faster. This includes multi-point infection on supply chains that could lead to more than one entity getting infected 
  • Chinese APT groups are vacuuming up upto 75 TB of data each data from target networks
  • APT actors are also becoming more active in LATAM countries 
  • Weaponized resumés are now connected with as much as 16 percent of all cyber attacks
  • New Lockbit variants are showing signs of AI-induced modification
  • Russian APT groups are training other APT groups elsewhere
  • Attacks on IoT and OT-based infrastructure have logged a rise across the globe 
  • When it comes to the communication hierarchy, North Korean APT hackers operate through commands given directly to them through a single handler. In the case of Chinese, Iranian, and Russian APT actors, multiple handlers manage hackers in parallel.
