Hackers so far ahead of defenders it’s not even a game
Cybercriminals are way ahead of the game against defenders without having to try anything new, according to the latest edition of Verizon’s benchmark survey of security breaches.
The study shows that miscreants have no need to switch up, because the same old tactics are still working fine. Security defenders are still performing poorly in their attempts to defend against hacking or malware-based attacks. This isn’t for a lack of trying or skills on their part, but almost completely down to the fact that the game is rigged against them.
