The cyber arms-race moves fast.
With blinding speed, agility and innovation, cybercriminals infiltrate well-meaning organizations in seconds, stealing data, trust and the futures of entire businesses. They attack with such avarice and maliciousness, what we thought we knew about threat actors and cybercriminals a year ago appears to be materially different today.
It’s the core reason cyber threats are becoming the number one risk to business, brands, operations and financials. 2017 showcased the ebb and flow of criminal behavior and their changing strategies, particularly for ransomware innovation and cyberattack tactics.
To mitigate these types of attacks, it’s important organizations understand, have access to and can leverage actionable, real-time cyber threat intelligence (CTI) to help bolster their security postures. In the end, visibility and awareness are key.
