Beware of malware
While data privacy concerns continue to dominate the headlines, concern about malware attacks, and more specifically ransomware, continues to grow. In fact, ransomware is the most frequent cause of lost business income and the most frequently-cited cause of recovery expense.5 During the past year, more than half of surveyed business decision-makers reported having experienced a malware-related attack or event.
New cyber threats emerge every day. We're concerned that while businesses have protected themselves from widely-publicized risks such as data breaches, they are not adequately protected from emerging exposures. Half of today's attacks employ "island hopping," where attackers go after a company's network and all the networks along its supply chain.
