This whitepaper provides a snapshot of regional events investigated by eSentire’s Security Operations Centre’s (SOCs) located in Cork, Ireland and Cambridge, Canada in 2018. The goal is to provide visual and data analysis, written analytical analysis, practical recommendations and key assumptions for security decision makers who are tasked with protecting their business’ data.
