There Are Scores of Threats Out There, but Ransomware Remains the Primary Enemy for Most Organisations

The ransomware landscape continues to thrive. Incident volumes, average ransom demands—these factors and more are increasing.

The menace of Ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS) affiliate models makes it easy for threat actors to scale their operations and target any industry or business regardless of size. In fact, these attacks can devastate even the largest global conglomerates.

And ransomware accounts for over half of the incidents reported by Secureworks. It is the number-one threat our customers face daily.

However, it’s far from the only threat plaguing businesses. As companies work to solidify their defences, adversaries do everything in their power to circumvent them.

In our 2021 report, we explore some of the most recent, hard-hitting cyberattacks. With this resource, we’ve developed a comprehensive view of the threat landscape across the security industry to date.
