Malware, including viruses, ransomware, and spyware, is becoming an increasingly destructive security threat affecting organizations of all sizes and across all industries.
The Ransomware/Malware Report was produced by Cybersecurity Insiders and Resecurity to reveal the state of the threat landscape and explore key challenges and solutions to protect against rising malware and ransomware threats.
Key findings include:
• A majority of 60% of cybersecurity professionals see malware and ransomware as an extreme threat to their organizations.
• Organized cyber-criminals (77%) top the list of malicious actors, followed by opportunistic hackers (67%) and nation-state sponsored hackers (50%).
• Spear-phishing emails remain the single most dangerous malware attack vector (82%), followed by domain spoofing (45%) and man-in-the-middle attacks (43%).
• The majority of respondents (72%) claim they can detect an attack within hours. Fifty percent of organizations report that detection is near real time or within minutes. Despite this quick response, most professionals lack confidence in their organization’s capacity to detect and block an attack before it spreads to critical IT systems and files.
We hope you find this report informative and helpful as you continue your efforts in protecting your organization against evolving threats and during challenging times.
