Sophos 2023 Threat Report

Maturing criminal marketplaces present new challenges to defenders

2022 was a disturbing year in the world of IT security. While many aspects of the threat landscape have evolved over the past year, perhaps the most significant is the continued development of the cybercriminal economy. 

With the cybercriminal ecosystem increasingly transforming into an industry itself, cyber criminals use a network of supporting services and well-established professionalised approaches to operations. This industrialisation of ransomware has evolved with criminal groups specialising in gaining access to professional operations with motives of exploitation.

Our partner, Sophos has released their 2023 Threat Report, presenting a snapshot of the threat landscape today, and examining the trends we’ve seen emerging in malicious activity. 

In this report, you’ll learn about: 

  • Geopolitical Impacts and Conditions
  • Attack-as-a-service Variations
  • Notable Attack Tool Detections
  • The Infostealer Ecosystem
  • Ransomware Attack Trends for Practitioners
