Announcing the 2020 Trustwave Global Security Report

There’s a famous saying that those who don’t learn history are doomed to repeat it. This sentiment is especially apropos to corporate cybersecurity, where malicious actors will continually exploit any weakness they can find, attack methodologies will repeat and sometimes prove cyclical, and the cybercriminal innovation of the future will be fueled by the cybercriminal successes of the past.

It’s imperative then – as we carry the fight against malicious actors into 2020 and beyond – to learn all we can about recent trends and consider their implications for the future. How are attack methodologies evolving – and how are white hat responses developing in kind? What exploits from the past made unexpected returns? What are the new security practices that CISOs, and other corporate security officers, need to be aware of?

Helping to answer those kinds of questions is exactly why the 2020 Trustwave Global Security Report was created.

Now in its 12th year, the Report contains an annual recap of the observations that the Trustwave security experts made throughout 2019, with invaluable statistics, data and analysis that can help your organization prepare for the road ahead. This information is based on investigations into real-world security breaches and data compromises, with intelligence gathered from a range of sources, including the criminal underground.

The 2020 Trustwave Global Security Report, which is available for complimentary download, is divided into an executive summary and three chapters, with facts and analysi­s on:

Data Compromises – Including compromise demographics by region, findings from real-world security breaches that occurred in 2019, observations from the Trustwave SpiderLabs team of researchers and ethical hackers, and insights into possible future developments.

Threat Intelligence – A presentation of the results of threat analyses performed by Trustwave researchers, an overview of our testing methodologies, learnings on how to maintain corporate security postures, examinations of network compromises, email attacks, malware statistics, and more.

The State of Security – An examination of database and network security, with a look at the most common vulnerabilities and security issues found in 2019. The chapter also includes a discussion of the potential impact of Microsoft ending support for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008.

In 2020, as the world of corporate cybersecurity faces unprecedented new challenges, the one constant will be the malicious intent of cybercriminals, who will exploit any opportunity for their own gain.
