Understanding the mobile threat landscape in 2018
This report will summarise the key mobile security trends that emerged in 2017, and summarise thoughts for the mobile threat landscape for the year ahead.
These are just a few of the factors that paved the way to a year of unprecedented threat to the enterprise.
The events of last year proved that organisations have every right to be concerned. Figures show that cyber incidents targeting businesses nearly doubled from 82,000 in 2016, to 159,700 in 2017. Ransomware attacks like WannaCry and SLocker wreaked havoc worldwide and barely a day went by without a data leak or exploit dominating the global headlines.
The threat landscape continues to be asymmetrical, and despite continued investment, enterprises struggle to outsmart cyber-criminals. What is it that makes the current mobile security climate that is so volatile? Why do malicious actors seek to infiltrate corporate devices?
"95% growth in mobile security breaches in 2017"
This report aims to provide answers to these questions by reflecting on recent breaches, giving visibility in the current threat landscape, whilst making forecasts for the year ahead.
It will examine some of the most notable threats to mobile devices over the past twelve months, and predict what the biggest challenges will be to secure the enterprise in 2018.
