As the threat landscape continues to evolve along with the opportunity for bad actors to disrupt your business we take a look ahead to better understand how we can mitigate these threats and improve our customers’ cyber resilience.
Awareness of the threat is key to delivering a suitable solution, each business or establishment is unique, however no one is safe. This year alone we have seen Hacktivists creating inverted chaos by attacking the Irish Health Service as well as a widespread outage within local schools caused by a datacentre ransom attack within Harris Federation. Let alone the plethora of attacks on businesses and individuals which includes Spyware on mobile phones.
One of the most shocking events in the cyber defence industry is the explosion in the use of Penetration Testing Software such as Cobalt strike which has seen hackers deploying commercially available testing tools to find targets.
The Sophos Threat report details current and future threats from Malware, Ransomware, including the increased threats from AI and Neural Networks, and makes for a compelling quick read.
