SANS 2022 Top New Attacks and Threat Report


Historically, security managers had the challenge of convincing C-Suite leaders and boards of directors of existing or potential threats. While those days are not necessarily long-gone, the persistence of ransomware attacks in the news has led decision makers to recognize the purpose of a strong defense. However, that doesn’t mean security managers have outlined a clear strategy regarding how the business can increase their effectiveness and efficiency in dealing with known threats, while also minimizing the risk from emerging attacks.

As the pandemic delayed the RSA Security Conference and the annual SANS Institute’ “Five Most Dangerous Attacks” expert panel, this report focuses on Q1 of 2022 and projections for 2023. This SANS whitepaper begins with a baseline of statistics from reliable sources of breach and malware data, concluding with summarizations of 2023 predictions from the SANS RSA Security Conference panel.

This survey also includes information surrounding:

  • Q1 2022 breach and threat baseline data
  • Summarizations of keynotes from the SANS 2022 threat expert panel
  • Predictions of which industries will see more or fewer breaches in the near future
