Distributed tech, Endpoint, Healthcare – NTT’s top threats for January 2021. NTT Ltd.’s latest Monthly Threat Report reveals that less than half (46.4%) of organisations increased their security tools during the shift to remote working in 2020.
The report provides practical insights for security teams to embed good cybersecurity practices for their organisations in 2021.
“To assist organizations which have been compromised, the Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) Team responds to breaches at client environments. Part of that tasking is to help clients mitigate and recover from breaches. This includes analyzing the root cause of the breach.
The global threat landscape has evolved greatly over the past few years. In the past, organizations primarily implemented security controls to prevent attackers from penetrating their organization’s applications or network perimeter devices. This approach was principally based on attackers exploiting vulnerable applications, devices or protocols. While attackers are still widely using those attack techniques, today’s attackers are also commonly using more evasive attack techniques to bypass perimeter security controls (e.g., firewalls) organizations have implemented.”
