Cyber threats are constantly evolving. As recently as 2016, Trojan malware accounted for nearly 50% of all breaches. Today, they are responsible for less than 7%.
That’s not to say that Trojans are any less harmful. According to the 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), their backdoor and remote-control capabilities are still used by advanced threat actors to conduct sophisticated attacks.
Staying ahead of evolving threats is a challenge that keeps many IT professionals awake at night. Understanding today's most important cyber threats is the first step toward protecting any organization from attack.
