BlackBerry’s 2022 Threat Report has been published at link.
Key findings of this edition of the report include:
- Small businesses will continue to be an epicenter for cybercriminal focus as SMBs facing upward of 11 cyberthreats per device per day
- An increasing number of payloads are being housed in public cloud platforms. The majority of these payloads are highly malleable, meaning they can be cheaply customized.
- In multiple incidents BlackBerry identified threat actors leaving behind playbook text files containing IP addresses and more, suggesting the authors of this year’s sophisticated ransomware are not the ones carrying out attacks.
- The proliferation of digital channels has bought old tactics – such as phishing and watering hole attacks – back into the mainstream; primarily because of their ability to scale.
