Secureworks has been tracking cybercrime activity for more than
10 years and, as we monitor this activity to protect our clients,
we collect a large amount of data on both the criminals and their
infrastructure and systems. This annual report presents an overview
of the cybercrime landscape and trends we observed primarily from
the period of mid-2016 to May 2017, in addition to a handful of other
trends ranging from 2015 to 2016.
Secureworks’ goal in publicly sharing this report’s findings is to help all organizations better protect themselves from current and emerging cyber threats; to help make them become Collectively Smarter. Exponentially Safer.™ When you can outsmart and outwit adversaries, when you can get in front of the threat, when you can anticipate, defend, predict and secure your organization, and when you can freely focus on growing and improving your organization, it’s a beautiful thing. We hope that you enjoy reading.
