Anyway you slice it, Managed Services Providers (MSPs) are geeks at heart. They love specificity with the engineering hat firmly affixed. This blog exams three specific security threats.

A constantly evolving threat landscape has demonstrated the need for accurate, up to date threat intelligence in order to protect organizations against potential risks. As this information is collected, it’s crucial that security teams also understand key trends, allowing them to map information to attack vectors in order to develop strategies that can effectively defend against sophisticated attacks. Mapping out these trends not only ensures that organizations are able to recognize and address current risks, but also prepare for threats they may face in the future.

Trend analysis is crucial to understanding how cybercriminals work and predicting what they will do next. Security teams can plan accordingly by not only closely examining prevalent cyberthreats and their main traits, but also anticipate future attack strategies by becoming familiar with the trajectory of attacks and attack evolution over time. This is the main intent behind Fortinet’s threat reports.

Understanding 3 Recent Cyber Threat Trends 

A recent Fortinet Threat Landscape Report presents findings collected by the FortiGuard Labs team during Q4 of 2018. The data summarized in this report centers on three primary trends – exploits, malware, and botnets. While not all the same, these aspects within the threat landscape are complementary in the sense that each played a critical role in top cyberthreat activity monitored throughout the year, and the prevalence and evolution of those activities during the last quarter of 2018.
