Cyber Threats 2020: Report on the Global Threat Landscape

Our new research, Cyber Threats 2020: Report on the Global Threat Landscape, highlights the most prolific cyber security trends we observed over the past 12 months and explores their wider impact.

It examines the growing threat from ransomware and the new vulnerabilities being exploited as a result of remote working. Our analysis will help you understand the tactics and techniques used by cyber threat actors, so you can assess how your organisation might be vulnerable and take action to reduce the risk of a cyber incident.

The report is based on our in-house intelligence datasets, intelligence gleaned from our incident response engagements around the world, and our managed cyber defence service, as well as publicly available information from the cyber security community.
