<h2>An Introspective Analysis of Your Environment is Crucial to Preventing Cyberattacks</h2> <p>Today’s media coverage focuses on breaches, outages, and statistics related to attacks in cyberspace. Unfortunately, solid advice on threat detection and prevention is not provided in the news stories. The cybersecurity industry needs expert analysis on how to increase effectiveness and efficiency when dealing with known threats and on minimizing risk from emerging threats going forward. </p> <p>For over a decade, the SANS Five Most Dangerous Attacks expert panel at the RSA Conference has filled in that gap. In this latest Top New Attacks and Threat Report, SANS author John Pescatore provides insight into threats highlighted during the panel discussion held at the 2021 RSA Conference. The report also summarizes mitigation techniques for each attack described by the panel of experts. </p> <p>Points of discussion include:</p> <ul> <li>Undermining Software Integrity</li> <li>Improper Session Handling</li> <li>Corrupting and Reversing Engineering Machine Learning</li> <li>Evolving Ransomware Techniques and Motivations</li> </ul> <p><strong>Read the full report to learn more about the emerging threats to look out for in 2021 and in the years to come. </strong></p>
