The Modern Cybersecurity Landscape: Scaling for Threats in Motion

For the majority of 2020, in the face of a global pandemic, the entire world has been grappling with massive change — in how we live, how we work, how we connect. But one area that’s always been dynamic and rapidly evolving is the cyber threat landscape.

Here at Cisco, we’ve seen firsthand how commonplace threats have quickly evolved into complex, multi-stage attacks that use tried-and-true malware methodology paired with innovative new tactics to cover their tracks. In the face of these new threats, InfoSec teams are feeling increasingly overwhelmed. The right information, however, can prepare you for what’s out there.

Cisco Umbrella has identified a number of major threat trends that will have serious implications far beyond 2020:

  • Trend #1: Trojans and droppers are getting a second life as new forms of malware delivery.
  • Trend #2: Orchestrated, multi-staged, evasive attacks are becoming the norm.
  • Trend #3: Cryptomining is opening the door to other types of cyber threats.
  • Trend #4: Attackers are taking advantage of pandemic-related content to propagate threats.

Learn about why you’ll need machine speed and predictive threat intelligence to counter these rising trends.
