SUMMARY

This report about cyberattack trends shows that ransomware saw in 2018 a significant drop in this type of attack. However, ransomware attacks, the report notes, are not gone and continue to be an important cause of worries for businesses.

The online research reviews the newest threats that companies and public-organizations have to face in the current generation of the cyber landscape and includes insights from the past year.

The paper also gives an in-depth analysis of the trends found in the sections of Cryptominers, Ransomware, Malware techniques, Data Breaches, Mobile and Nation State cyber attacks.

One of the study's findings is that even the best mobile application stores don't count on sufficient means for defending against attacks, as the mobile threat landscape is always changing.

There is little doubt that mining is here to stay, the paper states. Cryptomining attacks increased significantly in 2018, it adds, as they affected more than 40% of companies in the world - against 20.5% attacks at the end of 2017. In fact, crytomining attacks dominate the main cyber-attacks, the report reveals.

Besides, 2018 has experienced Ransomware becoming more targeted to ensure bigger profits. On the other hand and regarding the mobile trends, the paper explains that Apple has also become a more interesting target for cybercriminals as its user base has grown.
