SANS 2021 Top New Attacks and Threat Report
The media covers many breaches and outages, and backward-looking statistics related to how many attacks occurred in cyberspace abound. However, you have to search harder to find solid advice about threat detection and prevention. The industry needs expert analysis of how security managers should prioritize to increase effectiveness and efficiency in dealing with known threats while also moving forward to minimize the risk from emerging attacks.
For the past 15 years, the SANS Five Most Dangerous Attacks expert panel at the annual RSA Security Conference has filled that gap. This SANS whitepaper begins with a baseline of statistics from reliable sources of breach and malware data and then summarizes SANS instructors’ expert advice from the RSA panel, which details the emerging threats to look out for in 2021 and beyond.
