Threat Intelligence provides the power to protect your organization against emerging threats.
The SecureWorks® Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) research team analyzes security threats and helps organizations protect their systems. During November and December 2016, CTU™ researchers identified lessons learned and observed notable developments in threat behaviors, the global threat landscape, and security trends.
Given these sophisticated attacks and increasingly adaptable threat actors, CTU researchers encourage organizations to consider the lessons learned from these incidents when designing their security protections. While implementing security best practices could limit the likelihood and impact of many intrusions, understanding and addressing threat behaviors can help organizations anticipate and disrupt potential breaches.
