Staying Ahead of the Curve: Detecting and Mitigating the Latest Cyber Threats

In today’s digital landscape, the importance of cybersecurity cannot be overstated. As technology evolves, so do the tactics used by cybercriminals. According to a 2022 IBM study by the Ponemon Institute, 83% of U.S. companies have experienced a data breach more than once, costing them over $9.44 million, more than double the global average of $4.35 million. 

To add fuel to the fire, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency recently added 66 new vulnerabilities to its Known Exploited Vulnerabilities Catalog. Additionally, new common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) grew by over 24% year-over-year in 2022. 

At this point, it’s not if a cyberattack is going to occur, but when. 

To protect sensitive information and systems and combat the rising costs of a data breach, it is crucial for organizations to stay one step ahead of the ever-evolving, and increasing, threat landscape. 

In our latest whitepaper, we explore some of the most significant cybersecurity threats organizations are currently facing, including phishing, ransomware, DDoS attacks, zero-day exploits, and malicious bots – to name a few. Here are some highlights:
