2022 State of the Threat

By SecureWorks


The purpose of this report is to share our view on how the threat landscape has evolved over the last twelve months, with a clear focus on our first-hand observations of threat actor tooling and behaviors. This report reviews changes in the ransomware landscape, and in the behavior of threat actors enabling ransomware groups with malware like loaders and stealers. It surveys significant activity by major government-sponsored threat groups. And it examines how threat actors move swiftly to exploit new vulnerabilities, and how they combine sophisticated with more basic techniques to evade detection by defenders once inside the network. The report concludes by examining how Taegis forms the backbone of this visibility.
