10 Cybersecurity Threats That Should Be Top Of Mind For All Companies

Jay Fitzgerald

From hybrid attacks to fake LinkedIn phishing emails, experts outline what they consider some of the major and emerging cybersecurity threats.

They seemingly come in all shapes and sizes, 24/7, preying on both big and small victims, all across the world.

We’re talking, of course, about various forms of cyberthreats around the globe. Some threats are old, some are new, and some are new mutations of the old.

Cyberthreats are constantly evolving, with cyberintruders often reacting to the digital defenses thrown up by cybersecurity companies and coming up with new tactics and vectors to get around them.

In other words, cybercriminals learn and adapt and are constantly looking for system vulnerabilities.

As part of CRN’s Cybersecurity Week 2022, CRN recently talked to threat experts at two cybersecurity companies—John Fokker, head of threat intelligence at Trellix and a member of the new Trellix Advanced Research Center, and Martin Zugec, technical solutions director at Bitdefender—about some of cyberthreats they’re seeing out there.

The two companies also submitted written descriptions of threats as they see them. In addition, CRN relied on examples of other threats from cybersecurity vendors Nexusguard and Check Point Software Technologies.

Following are the 10 threats as cited by the four companies.
