2015 Cyber Threats and Trends from Verisign iDefense Security Intelligence Services



The Verisign iDefense Security Intelligence Services 2015 Cyber Threats and Trends report provides an overview of key cybersecurity trends during the past year or more, and how those trends and others might unfold in the near future. The majority of this year's threats and trends reflect research on assets, actors and targets. Throughout 2014, iDefense witnessed cyber-criminals increasing their focus on attacking mobile devices and point-of-sale (PoS) systems, and global events continuing to drive hacktivist activity and other operations in frequency and severity. In addition, legacy operating systems and those that reached their end-of-life continued to plague organizations' office automation networks, industrial control system (ICS) networks, and automated teller machines (ATMs) in the financial, retail and healthcare sectors. By making this information available, we hope to inform cybersecurity and business operations teams of the critical cyber threats and trends affecting their enterprises, allowing them to anticipate and more effectively plan for forthcoming key cybersecurity issues.
