Threat Zone 17/18: New Challenges of the Digital World

Threat Zone 17/18: New Challenges of the Digital World

On July 5–6, the Moscow World Trade Center hosted the first International Cybersecurity Congress, where BI.ZONE presented an annual analytical research “Threat Zone 17/18: New Challenges of the Digital World”
July 6, 2018

In this research based on the results of work in 2017–2018, cybersecurity experts from BI.ZONE gave an overview of the general state of the global economy in the context of digital threats and talked about the largest cybercriminal groups and their methods of work. Special attention was paid to real-life cases; for example, our specialists demonstrated that phishing letters and social engineering methods are the most effective in terms of enticing users, and showed which malicious programs affect most users in Russia and other countries.

The research also includes recommendations on protection against various types of attacks, from ransomware to supply-chain attack, and provides a forecast for the nearest future. According to our information, the number of cyberattacks will steadily grow. The actions of intruders will mostly affect financial institutions and banks—during the period of the research, every second attack targeted companies of this particular sector.
