Watch SecurityHQ’s very own Security Monitoring and Incident Response Lead, Aaron Hambleton and Security Analyst, Nikhil Mohanlal, discussing some of the greatest threats of 2021, trends that developed throughout 2021, what we learnt from these threats and attacks, and what that means for 2022.
2021 saw a massive spike in threats, of all types, across the globe. Being more proactive with regards to security measures and processes, rather than reactive, means staying ahead of the growing threat landscape. Knowing what is out there and what threats are likely to hit in 2022, based off an analysis of what we have seen throughout 2021, means that methods to contain and mitigate can be put in place in order to remediate and mitigate attacks.
