THE HUMAN FACTOR 2016

How today's threats prey on the human factor

Advanced Threats Report

Today’s advanced attacks focus more on exploiting human flaws than system flaws. To explore this under-reported aspect of enterprise threats, we created The Human Factor.

Highlights of this year’s report:

  • Extending a shift that began in 2014, URL-based campaigns gave way to massive, constantly evolving campaigns that deliver malware payloads through malicious documents. 
  • Social engineering has become the No. 1 infection vector. 
  • Campaigns are more tailored to target regions.
  • Social media and mobile apps are no longer corner cases for information security policy. Instead, they have become a key route to victims.
