Cybersecurity company Webroot has shared the results of its Webroot Threat Report: Mid-Year Update, which explores the evolving cybersecurity landscape.
Based on trends in the first half of 2018, Webroot found that cybercriminals are shifting to increasingly sophisticated and targeted means of attack while also expanding their money-making endeavours, as shown by the uptick in cryptojacking and cryptomining.
This report also highlights the importance of implementing a robust and evolving security approach to protect valuable data and keep systems secure.
Webroot senior threat research analyst Tyler Moffitt says, “Cybercriminals display an amazing ability to adapt to maximise their profits.
“Businesses need to adopt the same nimble mindset toward their cybersecurity. They need to continually reassess risks, adopt a multi-layered approach, and, ultimately, educate their employees about the latest threats on an ongoing basis.”
