SANS 2021 Top New Attacks and Threat Report

There is no shortage of media coverage of breaches and outages and there are many places to find backward looking statistics of how many attackers were launched in cyberspace. What is harder to find is expert analysis of what areas security managers should prioritize to increase effectiveness and efficiency in dealing with known threats while also moving forward to minimize the risk from emerging attacks. For the past 15 years, the SANS “Five Most Dangerous Attacks” expert panel at the annual RSA Security Conference has filled that gap. This SANS white paper begins with a baseline of statistics from reliable sources of breach and malware data and then summarizes the expert advice of the SANS instructors on the RSA panel detailing the emerging threats to look out for in 2021 and beyond.
