Arctic Wolf recently released the 2020 Security Operations Annual Report. This inaugural 27-page report takes an in-depth look at the state of the cybersecurity industry, featuring key themes, detailed stats, and information on how organizations can improve their security posture in today’s challenging threat environment.
The data was gathered directly from the Arctic Wolf® Platform and features real-world customer experiences. The key security operations findings and insights are drawn from environments we’ve protected.
We wanted to take things a step further and provide greater context to the report, as well as go into a deeper discussion on major themes, while also delivering actionable advice. On October 27th, join Mark Manglicmot, Vice President of Security Services at Arctic Wolf, for a webinar on Arctic Wolf's 2020 Security Operations Report: A Deep-Dive into Details and Findings at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT.
“Organizations that embrace security operations are more secure, more resilient, and better able to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances like we saw this year. This report highlights the security operations difference, and how Arctic Wolf is helping to end cyber risk.”
-Mark Manglicmot, Vice President of Security Services at Arctic Wolf
Leveraging insight from our experiences, the webinar will show key security trends observed by our security operations team, and we’ll share advice and practical methods on how to advance your own security operations capabilities. Here are just a few of our recent findings.
Key Stats from the Security Operations Report:
This is how much phishing and ransomware attempts have increased by since March 2020. Hackers have created new phishing lures around COVID-19 topics and modified traditional lures seeking to take advantage of remote workers.
The number that Critical vulnerability (CVE) patch time has increased by. This is due to a combination of higher CVE volumes, more critical CVEs, and the emergence of a remote workforce has significantly slowed down the patching programs of some organizations.
The total number of how much unsecured WiFi usage has gone up. This is due to remote workforces connecting to open and unsecured WiFi networks outside of the office or home are facing increased risks of malware exposure, credential theft, and browser session hijacking.
Since March of 2020, the number of cleartext usernames and passwords found to be exposed on the dark web. Remember that attacks have a much higher rate of succeeding when your guard is down—especially if you don’t have 24x7 coverage of your environment.
