RANSOMWARE CONTINUED TO BE THE DOMINANT THREAT TYPE IN Q3 OF 2021

On 5 January, a release on Mondo Visione said that the first Kroll Threat Landscape Report shows that ransomware was the dominant threat in Q3 2021.  The report, which will be published quarterly, looks at the evolution of cyber threats, including the most prominent threat incident attack methods, most prominent threat actor groups, most targeted sectors and risks on the horizon.  The professional services sector remained the most targeted sector overall in Q3, and additional sectors that were heavily targeted in Q3 include technology and telecommunications, financial services, health care and manufacturing.  Phishing and social engineering remained the most prominent infection vectors in Q3.
