Cisco 2018: Annual Cybersecurity Report

December 10, 2018

This white paper is hosted by SAPinsider and sponsored by Cisco.

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting systems, networks, and programs from digital attacks. These attacks are usually aimed at accessing, changing, or destroying sensitive information; extorting money from users; or interrupting normal business processes. Implementing effective cybersecurity measures is particularly challenging today because there are more devices than people, and attackers are becoming more innovative.

The Cisco Cybersecurity Report is published annually. These are the major findings uncovered within the Cisco 2018 Annual Cybersecurity Report:
  • Evolution of malware — Malware is becoming more vicious and harder to combat. We now face everything from network-based ransomware worms to devastating wiper malware. At the same time, adversaries are getting more adept at creating malware that can evade traditional sandboxing.
  • Malicious encrypted web traffic — As of October 2017, 50% of global web traffic was encrypted. Encryption is meant to enhance security, but it also provides malicious actors with a powerful tool to conceal command-and-control activity. Those actors then have more time to inflict damage.
  • Rise of artificial intelligence — Encryption also reduces visibility. More enterprises are therefore turning to machine learning and artificial intelligence. With these capabilities, they can spot unusual patterns in large volumes of encrypted web traffic. Security teams can then investigate further.
