Role of early Intelligence
in securing overall threat landscape
What’s inside the Role of early Intelligence in securing overall threat landscape report?
2021 bore witness to sizeable targeted attacks launched on Government entities, National critical infrastructure, Financial institutions, and the Manufacturing industry.
A substantial surge in Ransomware, notorious Malware as a Service (MaaS), and supply chain and Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) attacks made 2021 a tense year for organizations and entities. The volatility caused by the pandemic further exacerbated several firms’ digital transformation journey.
At the same time, geopolitical crises such as the Russia-Ukraine conflict also led to extensive cyber warfare involving multiple nations.
In 2021, Cyble Research Labs observed multiple threat actors employing the Wiper malware and other APT tools, including 0-day vulnerabilities.
Our cybersecurity findings have reaffirmed our belief in the mitigatory role of early threat intelligence and timely intervention at the early stages of cyberattacks.
Key takeaways includes how:
- Pandemic increased the pace of digital transformation, which in turn expanded the attack surface of many organizations
- Russia-Ukraine conflict and other geopolitical issues have led to an increase in attacks on National Critical Infrastructure and Hacktivism
- Malware and Ransomware-as-a-Service (MaaS & RaaS) are on the rise as Law enforcement cracks down on Threat Actors
