Cybersecurity Threats Organizations Should Watch Out For


Cybercriminals are constantly evolving their targets and hacking techniques.

In 2020, every organization should be wary of these 5 types of security threats:

  • Phishing
  • Malware attacks
  • Ransomware
  • Insider threats
  • Threats resulting from poor authentication

However, it is important to note that the IT landscape and, subsequently, potential security threats are constantly changing.

In this light, prevention measures should constantly advance too.

But don’t just focus on prevention. Security managers should ensure preventive, detective, and responsive measures are all robust in order to best secure their organizations.
