As we move into 2022, ransomware shows no signs of slowing down – that’s no surprise. What we have seen in the past 18 months, however, is a shift in tactics: targets have shifted to ever-larger organizations, and the business model that dictates how ransomware attacks occur has evolved. It’s up to IT professionals to proactively deal with these trends to meet the challenges just on the horizon and beyond.
The Sophos 2022 Threat Report clarifies the state of cybersecurity, giving organizations the insights they need to defend against evolving attacks.
The report is organized into five parts, in which we cover the ransomware epidemic and its aftermath, trends in conventional malware that targets Windows computers, malware on mobile platforms, security threats to infrastructure, and a section that covers the field of artificial intelligence, and how it applies to the practice of information security.
