The FireEye/Mandiant M-Trends 2017 report was published March 14, 2017 and reflects insight from investigations carried out by Mandiant consultants throughout 2016 around the world, as well as from FireEye-As-A-Service deployments globally. This year’s report illustrates an improvement in overall detection and response timelines. We will review the findings of the report, what they might indicate as future trends, and some strategies to help improve your organization’s overall posture relative to these threats.
