Report underscores progressing global cybersecurity threats.

TELECOMWORLDWIRE-May 2, 2019-Report underscores progressing global cybersecurity threats


Trustwave has released the 2019 Trustwave Global Security Report, which reveals the top security threats, breaches by industry and cybercrime trends from 2018, the company said.

The report is based on the analysis of billions of logged security and compromise events worldwide, hundreds of hands-on data-breach and forensic investigations, manual penetration tests, network vulnerability scans and internal research.

Findings illustrate cybercriminals deviating towards a more focused approach against targets by using better obfuscation techniques and improved social engineering skills as organizations improve in areas such as time to detection and response to threats.

Trustwave experts gathered and analyzed real-world data from hundreds of breach investigations that the company conducted in 2018 across 19 countries. This data was added to billions of security events logged each day across a global network of Trustwave Advanced Security Operations Centers, along with deep analysis of tens of billions of email messages; tens of millions of web transactions; thousands of penetration tests across databases, networks and applications; and telemetry from both native and partner technologies distributed across the globe.
