Defending against today’s critical threats


As with driving, not only do you get a good look at what’s behind you, but you can often spot what’s coming up quick, set to overtake you.

That’s the spirit of this threat report. We’ve picked out five key stories from the last year or so, not just because they were big events, but because we think these threats, or similar ones, could very well appear in the near future.

Take modular threats like Emotet and VPNFilter, for example. These are threats that
can deliver an on-demand menu of attacks and threats, depending on which device is
infected or the intended goal of the attacker We saw plenty of such modular threats in
recent history, and wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in the future.
