DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) released its annual security roundup report, “Setting the Stage: Landscape Shifts Dictate Future Threat Response Strategies,” which dissects the most significant security incidents from 2015. The research confirms attackers are now bolder, smarter and more daring in attack vectors, cyberespionage efforts and cyber underground activity on a global basis.
“Our observations for 2015 have confirmed that traditional methods of protecting data and assets are no longer sufficient and should be reassessed to maintain the highest level of corporate and personal security,” said Raimund Genes, CTO, Trend Micro. “The prevalence and sophistication of extortion, cyberespionage and expanding targeted attacks now dictate that organizational security strategies must be prepared to defend against a potentially greater onslaught in 2016. This realization can help the security community better anticipate and respond to what attackers are trying to accomplish.”
Online extortion and cyberattacks were a top concern in 2015, with several high-profile organizations being victimized. Ashley Madison, Hacking Team, the Office of Personnel Management and Anthem were a few of these high-profile attacks that left millions of employees and customers exposed. The healthcare industry witnessed its share of data breaches. Between Anthem and Premera Blue Cross, more than 90 million customers’ personal and sensitive data was exposed.
