SANS 2022 Top New Attacks and Threat Report
Historically, security managers had the challenge of convincing C-Suite leaders and boards of directors of existing or potential threats. While those days are not necessarily long-gone, the persistence of ransomware attacks in the news has led decision makers to recognize the purpose of a strong defense. However, that doesn’t mean security managers have outlined a clear strategy regarding how the business can increase their effectiveness and efficiency in dealing with known threats, while also minimizing the risk from emerging attacks.
