- Another threat is IoT based attacks due to the adding of many devices to companies’ infrastructures, which requires implementation of constant updates to remain safe.
- Mobile malware is an increasing attack on the security of users, who avoid updates or struggle with poor vulnerability management. There was a 95% growth in mobile security breaches in 2017 according to a Wandera report.
- With the changes in General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulations it is important to consider the geopolitical risks of your organization in terms of where your data is stored and what security control may apply on different countries’ territories.
- Cross-site scripting is another leading vulnerability type that allows adversaries to execute untrusted code in businesses’ browsers so that criminals to hijack users’ credentials and cookie information.
- Supply Chain Attacks are on the rise and a Bloomberg report identified small microchips to spy on companies used by a Chinese manufacturer.
