  • Kelli Vanderlee, Senior Manager, Threat Analysis, Mandiant at Google Cloud


  • Can you really forecast threats? Won’t the threat actors ultimately do whatever they want?

  • How can clients use the forecast? Or as Tim would say it, what gets better once you read it?

  • What is the threat forecast for cloud environments? It says “Cyber attacks targeting hybrid and multi-cloud environments will mature and become more impactful“ - what does it mean?

  • Of course AI makes an appearance as well: “LLMs and other gen AI tools will likely be developed and offered as a service to assist attackers with target compromises.” Do we really expect attacker-run LLM SaaS? What models will they use? Will it be good?

  • There are a number of significant elections scheduled for 2024, are there implications for cloud security?

  • Based on the threat information, tell me about something that is going well, what will get better in 2024?
