North America Is a Prime Target for Threat Actors and APT Groups
Anomali Threat Research has analyzed numerous types of malicious cyber activities that affect North America. Given that North America includes the world’s largest economy it is no surprise that threat actors and Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) groups would focus their efforts on the region due to the vast potential of targets.
Close government ties between the United States and Canada allows for cyber intelligence-sharing but also increases the risk for state-sponsored groups to target these countries. Adversaries know these countries hold valuable intelligence and will attempt to exploit a weakness in one to compromise the other.
Due to the complex nature of sophisticated threat actors and groups, in addition to economic and geopolitical factors that can motivate cyberattacks, this report is broken down into sections to highlight specific threats and risk including:
- Cyber Landscape
- Threat Actors and Groups
- Common Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs)
- Industry Targeting
