Security Report

It is always smart to stay on top of what is happening in such a fast changing threat landscape.  Nothing perhaps is as fast moving and changing as cyber security threats – malware, ransomware, DDoS attacks and more.  So much to keep up with!

IBM has issued a new series of reports that I would recommend to you. The annual IBM® X-Force® Cyber Security Intelligence Index report offers a high-level overview and detailed look at the type and volume of attacks, which industries are most affected, and the key factors enabling attackers to help you better understand the current threat landscape. It reveals how security threats are evolving year to year, and provides well-informed insights about the impact they can have on your organization.

There are several reports. There are four reports are divided by industry:

  • Financial Services
  • Retail
  • Healthcare
  • Manufacturing

This link also includes the 2016 Ponemon Cost of Data Breach Study which has three separate reports:

  • Impact of Business Continuity Management report
  • Country-specific report
  • Global report

Who Done It!And lastly there are some very interesting reports published by the IBM Managed Security Services (MSS) Threat Research Group. These documents detail recent threats that could adversely affect your environment.

Based on operational data collected from thousands of devices monitored in over 100 countries, the 2016 Cyber Security Intelligence Index from IBM Security Services was created by the IBM X-Force research team, which works diligently to keep clients informed and prepared for the latest cybersecurity threats.
