For more than a decade, Cisco's security reports have been a definitive source of intelligence for security professionals interested in the state of the global industry. These comprehensive reports provided detailed accounts of the threat landscape and their organisational implications.
Today, Cisco is publishing its second report for 2019: Defending against today's critical threats. This white paper looks back at the threat landscape over the past year, highlighting some of the key cyber security incidents during that timeframe. However, this isn't just another retrospective report, fondly looking back at events that have already come to pass.
The Tenth Annual State of the Network Global Study
focuses a lens on the network team’s role in security
investigations. Results indicate that 88 percent of
network teams are now spending time on security
issues. In fact, out of 1,035 respondents, nearly
3 out of 4 spend up to 10 hours per week working
exclusively on these types of problems - in addition
to managing network upgrades, SDN, cloud, and big
When it comes to technology adoption, both cloud and
100 GbE deployment continue to grow aggressively.
VoIP adoption is closing in on 60 percent and
software-defined networking (SDN) is projected to
cross the halfway mark, indicating compounding
network complexity amidst the ongoing struggle to
ID security threats.
With growth comes change and some trends
identified in this year’s survey include a rise in email
and browser-based malware attacks (63 percent)
and an increase in sophistication (52 percent). Nearly
1 in 3 also report a surge in DDoS attacks, signaling
As customers demand and expect more of a digitized experience, the scale and volume of secure data that’s being transmitted across the network is increasing exponentially. At the same time, across the APAC region high digital connectivity, contrasted with low cybersecurity awareness, growing cross-border data transfers and weak regulations have made this data a global target.
The growth in the “as-a-service” nature of the cybercrime marketplace is also fueling an increase in the number of traditional crime groups and individuals drawn into cyber offending. New sources of vulnerability from mobile, BYOD, CYOD, web-services and IoT devices are further broadening the cyber threat landscape with ever-more sophisticated forms of malware and DDoS attacks.

Enterprises and users continue to be concerned about mobile apps and mobile malware because they have been trained by legacy antivirus software packages. Look for a known malware file and remove it.
The issue with this logic on mobile devices is the mobile operating systems evolve and add features very rapidly. The mobile operating systems add millions of lines of code in a year and therefore introduce unintended consequences, bugs and vulnerabilities. In 2017, there were more CVEs registered for Android and iOS than all of 2016 and 2015 combined. In 2017 there were 1229 CVEs awarded. Over half of these CVEs that received scores of 7 or greater indicated that the vulnerabilities are severe and exploitable. This trend is expected to continue as the mobile operating systems mature and more features are added.
As another year draws to a close, few can have failed to notice the plagues of malicious software, floods of fraudulent emails and the generally increased pestilence of our online world, marking out 2007 as one of the most remarkable in the history of malware. This report covers the top malware threats in 2007 and provides monthly summaries.

The third-annual Cyberthreat Defense Report pursues this same objective: to inform the IT security community not so much about what the bad guys are up to, but rather about how their peers globally are currently defending against threats and the changes they expect to make going forward. Based on a rigorous survey of IT security decision makers and practitioners – across not only North America and Europe, but for the first time, in Asia Pacific and Latin America as well – the Cyberthreat Defense Report examines the current and planned deployment of countermeasures against the backdrop of numerous perceptions.

organizations at an unprecedented rate and with
devastating consequences. Modern attackers, including
criminal organizations, ideological groups, nation states
and other advanced threat actors are motivated by a wide
range of objectives that include financial gain, industrial
