Fifth and Sixth Generation Cyberattacks data

The new landscape has generated a surge of sophisticated fifth-generation cyberattacks

For 72% of people responding to Snow Software for its 2021 IT Priorities Report, ensuring overall security presents significant obstacles. And they said fears around security grew when considering technology that IT either doesn’t know about or doesn’t manage.

This year alone, enterprises and SMBs can expect insider incidents to reach 33%, up from 25%, per Forrester Research .

Along the way, MSPs/MSSPs must keep in mind that a cloud environment is only as secure as the polices and controls that oversee it. Managed hosting provider Aptum discovered in a recent survey that 82% of IT professionals face this dilemma as they expand and diversify their cloud infrastructure.

Why do we care?

The opportunity is in that management of controls and policies, which is what I care about.    Here’s the other angle – fifth generation cyber attack.    Defined as “large scale, multi-vector attack vector that is designed to infect multiple components of an information technology infrastructure, including networks, virtual machines, cloud instances and endpoint devices.“   So you know, there’s also a sixth generation, which adds anything digital at all.  

A pause for definitions as we all get smarter on cybersecurity.
