SECURITY REPORT 2019

SECURITY REPORT 2019

2018 introduced a challenging threat landscape. Threat actors consistently improved their cyber weapons, adopted new methods and adapted their attacks to emerging technologies. And although it may have seemed the past year was quieter, this is far from the case. In the 2019 Security Report we review the latest threats facing organizations in the fifth generation of the cyber
landscape and provide you with our observations and insights from the past year. These attacks can be characterized as more targeted and stealthy, with the aim of sowing greater destruction. Whether carried out by cyber criminals or nation-states, the targeted attacks of 2018 revealed that financial and espionage motivations are not the only driving factors. With more attacks that shut down entire organizations or disrupted international events, ‘boutique’ ransomware attacks became very popular during 2018. We also review the predictions made in our 2018 Security Report and assess to what extent these proved accurate. Along the way we provide cutting edge analysis from our in-house experts to arrive at a better understanding of today’s threat landscape.
