For years businesses have striven to keep malware, spam and unwanted intruders at bay with varying degrees of success. Much of the protection they have put in place assumes that most of these attacks will be random and that, if an organisation’s defences are too hard to breach, the attacker will seek an easier victim. That situation is changing fast with the rise of targeted attacks (or advanced persistent threats/APTs), where both cyber-criminals and hacktivists are targeting selected organisations and persisting until they achieve their goals. New research presented in this report underlines the scale and real impact of the problem, the measures being taken to defend against targeted attacks and how effective they are. It should be of interest to anyone charged with defending their businesses against contemporary cyber threats or who wants to better understand their organisation’s vulnerability.  Access >>>
