As is becoming more apparent, cyber criminals are more interested in the results of their attacks rather than the glory. This implies that they will look for the path of least resistance, and what better way that to exploit this than weak password policies?
According to new research by eSentire, cyber-criminals are moving away from sophisticated attacks in favour of inexpensive and automated methods of intrusions. Low risk, high reward: Threat actors leave sophisticated attacks behind The greatest risk to mid-sized organisations is rudimentary attacks, such as intrusion attempts, information gathering and policy violations. A recent cyber-threat report from eSentire provides an overview of the cyber-threats investigated by the company's Security Operations Centre (SOC) in 2016. The research provides threat perspective for business leaders in small and midsize organisations as well as takeaways to help strategically reduce the risk of cyber-threats.
