2019 Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR): The New Threat Landscape
Join Symantec for a discussion on the key findings from Symantec’s Annual Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR). The report provides an overview of the threat landscape, including insights into global threat activity, cyber-crime trends and attack motivations.
The report analyzes data from the Symantec Global Intelligence Network, the largest civilian threat intelligence network in the world, recording events from 123 million attack sensors worldwide, blocking 142 million threats daily while monitoring threat activity in over 157 countries.
This presentation will highlight key findings from the report including:
·         Formjacking was the breakthrough threat of 2018, as cryptojacking and ransomware show signs of decline. However, ransomware infections within enterprises jumped by 12 percent.
·         Living off the land and supply chain attacks are now a staple of the new threat landscape.
·         Cloud users facing challenges on multiple fronts through data leaks from cloud storage and low-level chip vulnerabilities with more than 70 million records stolen or leaked.
·         Targeted attack groups show increasing interest in operational & industrial control systems with the potential for sabotage.
