The final quarter of 2016 marked the end of a transformative – and disruptive – year for information security and cyber threats. During the course of 2016’s final months, media outlets were saturated with stories of Russian hacking, attacks against United States political parties, the revelation of a two-year-old data breach that has become the largest in U.S. history, and a distributed denial of service (DDOS) attack against one of the world’s top internet service providers (ISP) for web-based content delivery.
As we turn to these challenges in 2017, it is noteworthy that the level and ferocity of attacks seems to continue unabated. From remote desktop hacking to national cyber armament, and the looming specter of another season of tax return-based identity theft, 2017 is shaping up to be another watershed year for cyber threats. The increased reliance on industrial automation, drones, self-driving cars, and the continued expansion of connected-device technology, coupled with a shift in the global regulatory structure, all make 2017 a formative year in the progression of information security and cyber threats, both domestically and globally.
The Navigant Cyber Threat Intelligence ReportSM (hereinafter referred to as the Report) is written to be both retrospective and proactive – practical and timely for organizations both in the U.S. and abroad. This Report can and should be used to help inform and direct information security decision-making and budgeting for organizations of all sizes and across all industries.
