The Secureworks® Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) research team analyses security threats and helps organisations protect their systems.
During March and April 2018, CTU™ researchers identified lessons learned and observed notable developments in threat behaviors, the global threat landscape, and security trends:
- Geopolitical tension led to increased focus on Russian cyber activity.
- Business email compromise (BEC) attacks continued to be successful in stealing money.
- Cybercriminals shifted their focus to targeted attacks.
