The sudden and wide-scale transformation to remote and hybrid working last year changed the digital landscape overnight, and introduced heightened risks and new challenges. Well-established procedures were quickly rewritten, best practices rethought, and policies stretched to breaking point.

This threat report looks at four key trends that have been identified by Darktrace based on observations across its global customer base. Every stage of the attack lifecycle is explored, from reconnaissance and initial intrusion, through to the final stage of the kill chain: ransomware and data exfiltration.

Learning outcomes:

  • Learn how the accelerated adoption of collaboration and cloud technologies has heightened the cyber-resilience deficit where cybersecurity capacity is insufficient.
  • Understand how these unforeseen changes to working practices have created new opportunities for increasingly sophisticated attackers.
  • Discover four key trends identified in the cyber threat landscape for 2021: SaaS takeover, the rise of Fearware, Server-Side Attacks, and Ransomware
