The Secureworks® Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) research team analyzes security threats and helps organizations protect their systems.
During July and August 2017, CTU™ researchers identified lessons learned and observed notable developments in threat behaviors, the global threat landscape, and security trends:
- Use of social platforms to target victims necessitates a broader scope of social engineering training.
- Espionage campaigns against law firms underscored the need for a layered defense.
- Threat actors took advantage of gaps in business processes to steal funds.
- Phishing emails executed malicious code without user interaction.
