This eBook explores the beastly threats scratching at the perimeter of your company’s computers and IT networks, and where these threats are trending.

An ominous headline in the LA Times proclaims: “2016 is shaping up as the year of ransomware – and the FBI isn’t helping.” This was written days after the US Internal Revenue Service warned payroll and HR professionals about the growing trend of Business Email Compromise attacks targeting tax-related data.

And these are just two of the beastly threats stalking the internet, trying to steal your company’s data, money and peace of mind.

With one billion users, the internet offers a vast hunting ground for these attacks. In 2014, about 84 million new strains of malware were created – 230,000 new viruses each day. Large businesses and websites of all types were attacked or had client data stolen, affecting millions of users across the world.

And it’s only going to get worse, as cyber-criminals find new ways to smash through security software. This eBook explores the beastly threats scratching at the perimeter of your company’s computers and IT networks, and where these threats are trending.
