Breaches in 2015 succeeded not because the victims lacked security altogether, but because thieves found and exploited a small hole in their security program.
While every year brings new, high-profile data breaches, cybercriminals went especially big in 2015, elevating both the magnitude of data breached and the size of organizations targeted. Victims included large insurance companies; government institutions like the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM); retailers including Walmart, CVS and Costco; and online businesses like the Ashley Madison dating site. And as in years past, these breaches succeeded not because the victims lacked security altogether, but because thieves found and exploited a small hole in their security program.
Whether through a third-party vendor, an infected laptop, social engineering or plain malware, hackers made the most of their opportunities in 2015. But each successful hack provides an opportunity for security professionals to learn from others’ oversights. They arm us with new insights we can use to examine our own strategies and shore up holes in our own defense systems. That’s why each year we present the most common attacks observed by the Dell SonicWALL Threat Research Team, while offering a glimpse into emergent threats for the coming year. Our goal is to help organizations of all sizes more effectively prevent attacks in 2016, both from known threats and those yet to emerge.
