Complimentary Report: How to Respond to the 2023 Cyberthreat Landscape
Security and risk management leaders must refine their strategies to identify and better adapt to the most important cyberthreat trends rather than allocating resources to overhyped or hypothetical attack scenarios.
The report addresses three threat categories:
- Top threats. Threats that organizations are highly aware of and remain relevant year after year as a result of underlying changes.
- High-momentum threats. Threats that are growing, but for which awareness is not yet on par with that associated with the top threats.
- Uncertain threats. There is an infinite list of new and potential threats. The main question for this category is to determine whether the organization needs to address, postpone or ignore these “low signal” threats, which can be emerging and dangerous, or overhyped and a distraction.
SafeGuard Cyber: We Believe What's Old is New
The report states, "For the last decade or so, the same threats remain as the top trends: malware/ransomware, phishing and credential abuse."
We feel the evolution of phishing stand out as it now "involves using multiple channels, predominantly email, but attackers these days are also utilizing collaboration platforms, social media, text messaging (smishing), voice messaging (vishing) and even quick response (QR) codes to gather information."
Microtrends in phishing techniques mean organizations will need to adapt to higher volumes of phishing attacks coming from multiple channels.
Holistic visibility across multiple business communication channels is the highest priority.
