Aim Ahead of the Attack Target to Increase Security in 2017
A new trend report authored by John Pescatore of the SANS Institute focuses on the latest and best security hygiene and common success patterns that will prevent your organization from falling victim to major data breaches.
Cyber security trends clearly show that attacks on computer networks will continue, and many will succeed. Additionally, organizations must expand current security measures in order to better protect data in the cloud and to address the security shortcomings of the Internet of Things.
The cybersecurity trends that will continue to prevail in 2017 include:
- Known vulnerabilities continue to dominate — 80% of cybersecurity attacks exploit known vulnerabilities
- Breaches aren’t the entire story — ransomware attacks show high growth
- Fourth-party attacks are increasing — attacker trends moving further out in the supply chain to include subcontractors, outsourcers and more

AIM AHEAD OF THE ATTACK TARGET
INCREASE SECURITY IN 2017
SHOW HIGH GROWTH
■ Do you have malware detection
tools to quickly identify and
eradicate malware infections?
■ Do you have the ability to
continuously monitor your IT
environment for vulnerabilities,
and immediately remediate them?
70% OF THE WORKFORCE
WILL BE MOBILE BY 2020
■ Do you know where all of your IT
assets reside, who controls them,
and their associated security risks?
■ Do your security processes for
continuous monitoring, vulnerability
management, and compliance
monitoring extend to cloud services?
70% OF BOARDS WILL REQUIRE CISOS TO BRIEF THEM

80% OF ATTACKS EXPLOIT KNOWN VULNERABILITIES
■ Do you have the
ability to quickly
■ Do you have shielding
capabilities – like
intrusion prevention and
techniques – in place
for instances where
mitigation is not possible?
■ Do you have continuous
monitoring in place
to enable rapid
detection of attacks
4TH PARTY ATTACKS ARE RISING
■ Is your security team
involved in the supplier
■ Do you have processes
for continuous monitoring
of the vulnerability and
compromise status of
■ Do you have a
vendor and IT
risk audit tool?
ATTACKS EXPLOITING IOT
VULNERABILITIES ARE A REALITY
■ Do you know which IoT devices are
connected to your network at any
■ Do you have the ability to detect
vulnerabilities at the API level?
■ Can you programmatically scale
rapid scanning and patching of web
application vulnerabilities across
browser-based, mobile and IoT
services, and quickly deploy patches?
