Sophos has today published the mid-year update to its 2010 Security Threat Report, revealing the latest trends and findings from the world of cybercrime.
Read the official press release here.
I’m doing my bit to promote the report’s findings, having been transported into the oasis of cool known as the Soho Hotel in London, a short hop and a skip from media companies such as Momentum Films, 20th Century Fox and Paul McCartney’s MPL Communications.
Sadly my glamorous career doesn’t extend as far as making a cameo performance in a Bruce Willis disaster movie or playing the piccolo on Macca’s next album – instead, I’m esconsed in a comfy chair discussing SEO poisoning, fake anti-virus, and state-sponsored cybercrime.
Here are some of the topics we explore in the latest report:
- Cyberwar and Cyberterror
- Social Networking
- Data Loss and Encryption
- Web Threats
- Email Threats
- No OS is risk-free
- Mobile Devices
- The threat grows on
As was mentioned in today’s press release about the report, when we look back over the last six months it’s clear that state-sponsored cybercrime has become a particularly hot topic.
