The 2013 Threat Report from the Websense® Security Labs (WSL) is now available. The report details mobile, social, email and web-based threats, and while it is full of ominous data points, it is a very interesting read. The report is designed to help security professionals keep current with threat trends and improve the effectiveness of existing security solutions. It can also be used to identify and prioritize security gaps that may require new approaches and more innovative strategies.
Creating the report began with the ThreatSeeker® Network, composed of big data clusters used by the WSL to collect and manage up to 5 billion inputs each day from 900 million global endpoints. Malware samples, mobile applications, email content, web links and other information were then passed through deep analysis processes including our Advanced Classification Engine (ACE), which applied over 10,000 different analytics.
Here is a sampling of key findings from this year's report:
Because today's attacks occur in multiple stages through numerous vectors, the report includes an appendix on The Seven Stages of Advanced Threats. This methodology for analyzing and classifying cyberattacks provides a useful framework for organizations to assess their current defenses against their security profile, identify weaknesses and develop a more comprehensive strategy for withstanding next-generation attacks. A summary of the Websense 2013 Security Predictions report is also included for planning purposes.
