Welcome to the Cyber-Espionage Report (CER), our first-ever data-driven publication on advanced cyberattacks. The CER is one of the most comprehensive overviews of the Cyber-Espionage landscape, offering a deep dive into attackers, their motives, their methods and the victims who they target. The report serves as a tool for better understanding these threat actors and what organizations can do to hunt, detect and respond to Cyber-Espionage attacks.
This data-driven report draws from seven years of Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) content as well as more than 14 years of Verizon Threat Research Advisory Center (VTRAC) Cyber-Espionage data breach response expertise. The CER serves as a guide for cybersecurity professionals looking to bolster their organization’s cyberdefense posture and incident response (IR) capabilities against Cyber-Espionage attacks.
