Every year, we analyze enterprise security trends and risky behaviors from the point-of-view of an attacker and compile our findings into the Hacker’s Playbook Findings Report. What are some of the biggest security errors that organizations are making today? What are the most successful breach methods used by our virtual hacker?
We’re excited to share insights from the 3rd Edition, with analysis of more than 3400 breach methods executed across 11.5 million simulations in real production environments. Here’s what we found:
Top five malware gets in more than 50 percent of the time
The perimeter security mindset persists with not enough internal segmentation
No one is watching the exits enabling easy data exfiltration
Ransomware is rampant
Security controllers are not optimized to stop attacks
