Fortinet announced the findings of the latest quarterly Global Threat Landscape Report. The research reveals that cybercriminals continue to evolve the sophistication of their attack methods, from tailored ransomware and custom coding for some attacks, to utilizing pre-installed tools or established infrastructure to maximize efficiency for their opportunities.
As partners provide guidance to their customers on the strategies and tools to better secure their networks, that guidance should be informed by these most recent findings.

The holidays are a big event for cybercriminals. Over the next few weeks the number of compromised web sites, charity scams, email phishing campaigns, malicious web access points, and even fake shopping sites will all explode.
Cybercriminals are determined and informed on the latest trends and how to exploit them. Which is why we need to take the time to educate ourselves - and our friends and family – about shopping carefully so we can have a happy, and safe Holiday season.
Fortinet's quarterly Global Threat Landscape Report reveals threats are increasing and evolving to become more sophisticated. Unique threat variants and families are on the rise, while botnet infections continue to infect organizations.
