Bad actors improving efforts to evade and fool both traditional and AI-based defenses
Deep Instinct Threat Research team monitored attack volumes and types to predict where the future of cybersecurity is heading, find out what motivates attackers, and to lay out the steps organizations can take to protect themselves in the future.
What the research found is that bad actors are becoming more successful at evading AI/ML technologies, prompting organizations to redouble efforts in the innovation race.
Also, there has been an uptick in specific attack vectors, including a 170% rise in the use of Office droppers along with a 125% increase in all threat types combined. The volume of all malware types is substantially higher versus pre-pandemic.
