The Most Important Threats for Your Organization to Watch
The Optiv Cyber Threat Intelligence Estimate 2017 is a yearly report that reviews important events of the past calendar year, and uses them to make projections for the coming year. Professionals from Optiv’s Cyber Threat Intelligence practice and the Global Threat Intelligence Center (gTIC) collaborated to identify the most important threats to watch.
The Estimate is organized into three high-level categories:
There exists two common themes that run throughout the Estimate:
But not all maturation causes an increase in complexity. Over the past year, some criminals actually simplified their modus operandi. Recent high-profile successes in ransomware attacks were noted by potential victims and criminals alike. Organizations now have a heightened awareness to the possible impacts ransomware attacks could have on their bottom lines. Because there is a prevalent sense of fear, criminals now realize that they don’t actually need to create or execute on successful attacks. In fact, some criminals are now able to extort organizations by threatening with ransomware without having any intent to carry out the attack. Ransomware is an extremely low-risk, high-reward type of crime. Operating on margin, these extortionists only need a small fraction of their victims to pay because it is simple and cheap to send threats to a large number of potential victims.
The Cyber Threat Intelligence Estimate presents a wide range of threats relevant to all organizations. By utilizing the insight of Optiv threat intelligence analysts, organizations can better understand the threat landscape in which they find themselves, and better prepare for the threats that they might face.
