As real life and on-line become indistinguishable from each other, cybercrime has become a part of our daily lives. Attacks against business and nations hit the headlines with such regularity that they become anything but news, making us numb to the sheer volume and acceleration of cyber threats.
The annual Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR), examines all facets of the threat landscape; from targeted attacks to smartphone threats, from social media scams to the ‘Internet of Things’ vulnerabilities, from attackers targeting large corporations, small businesses and consumers, from tactics used by attackers to their behavior and motivations. The ISTR provides a thorough qualitative and quantitative examination of the threat landscape, an overview and analysis of the year in global threat activity and commentaries on emerging trends in attacks, malicious code activity, phishing, and spam.
This session will introduce participants to the 2016 edition of Symantec’s ISTR report while highlighting the collaboration with ITU in building Member states’ capacity in cybersecurity through dissemination of relevant up-to-date information, amongst other.
