As the saying goes, “the devil is in the details,” and in many ways, that sums up this year’s Global Threat Report. The details revealed in these pages are derived from firsthand observations of our frontline cyber responders and analysts, coupled with insights drawn directly from the unprecedented volume of crowdsourced threat telemetry we continuously collect and dissect on behalf of our customers.
This annual report offers important lessons and recommendations for security teams operating in today’s cybersecurity environment, where visibility and speed are more critical than ever.
Among the details you’ll learn in this report:
- How state-sponsored adversaries infiltrated networks to steal valuable data on vaccine research and government responses to the pandemic.
- How criminal adversaries introduced new business models to expand their “big game hunting” ransomware activities — and made them even more potent with the addition of blackmail and extortion techniques.
- How both eCrime and targeted intrusion adversaries stepped up their development efforts, deploying a variety of inventive new methods to evade detection and confound defenders.
Security teams must become more versatile, more proactive, and more productive to stay ahead of these threats.
