Event Description

Volt Typhoon and suspected related cyber threat groups continue to pose one of the most significant threats to the United States. Their cyber operations are becoming more targeted and deliberate against key US Govt organizations and critical utility operators throughout the country. Mandiant will provide a briefing on recent Volt Typhoon (and related) cyber operations against the US government and additional operations targeting critical infrastructure, specifically the energy grid. This will be a holistic picture of the threat Volt Typhoon represents to the United States.
