Security breaches are all over the news, and it can be easy to think that all the enemies are outside your organization. But the harsh reality is that more than half of all attacks are caused by either malicious insiders or inadvertent actors.1 In other words, the attacks are instigated by people you’d be likely to trust. And the threats can result in significant financial or reputational losses.
Security threats are very real, and the stakes are higher than ever. Each day, tens of thousands of malware variants are
created, with new classes of threats continually added and improved upon. Savvy attackers use polymorphic programs
to alter malware into new form factors after each delivery. And all of this is exacerbated by the proliferation of mobile
devices, cloud computing and social media—in fact, the intersection of these technologies provides fertile new ground
for threats and malware.
Today’s attacks are often not random, but targeted for maximum financial gain and impact. Rogue individuals and
groups are constantly innovating new ways to attack organizations’ most valuable assets. As a result, traditional
methods of dealing with threats are no longer enough. Organizations need more threat intelligence than ever before
in order to effectively protect themselves.
