BlueVoyant Research Illuminates Latest Cyber Attack Techniques and Best Defense Practices
The most recent cyber criminal tactics include using generative AI for phishing, online advertisements as an attack vector, and continued quicker exploitation of new vulnerabilities
NEW YORK, Feb. 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- BlueVoyant, a cybersecurity company that illuminates, validates, and remediates internal and external risks today released the findings of its second external cyber defense trends report, which highlights the new risks organizations face from outside the traditional IT perimeters.
"Organizations' attack surfaces are ever expanding, and cyber threat actors are adapting their strategies to exploit new avenues of vulnerabilities," said Joel Molinoff, BlueVoyant's global head of supply chain defense. "BlueVoyant undertook this research to shine a light on the attack vectors organizations need to be aware of and recommended actions to help prevent the latest threats."
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming how enterprises do business with the ability to generate content efficiently. Cyber criminals are also capitalizing on AI to create more effective phishing campaigns.
"The biggest cybersecurity risk from the increasing use of AI tools is an escalated volume of attacks," said Ron Feler, BlueVoyant's global head of threat intelligence. "While the essentials of the attacks don't change, the increased number and diversity of attacks make defenders' jobs more challenging."
The report' key findings focus on:
The research was completed using trend data queries from BlueVoyant's Supply Chain Defense and Digital Risk Protection solutions.
