                • Systems Exposed - Vulnerabilities in ubiquitous corporate products and mobile devices presented lucrative targeting opportunities.
                • Lax Policies = Risks - Misconfigurations and lax security policies introduced risks for data theft, financial fraud, and further compromises.
                • Ransomware Reigned - Ransomware was the most popular malware type in March, which led to many more infections and innovations than other malware types this month.
                • Financial Organizations Hit - Threat actors focused on targets in the financial vertical.
                • Encryption Debate Unresolved - The FBI unlocked a terrorist's iPhone without Apple's assistance, continuing the war between encryption and law enforcement access.
