Each step in the evolution creates an even more perilous environment, and it isn't just the technology that is changing. Today, more than ever, those seeking to do harm have greater access to cybercriminals- for-hire and easily executable attacks. Hackers are better funded than ever, increasingly securing backing from state-sponsored agents, with a wide variety of sophisticated attacks and tools that expose vulnerabilities in your defenses. A clear majority of attacks continue to be financially motivated. Out of 2,216 data breaches tracked in a study by Verizon in 2017, more than 76 percent were financially motivated. As the study notes, "Most attacks are opportunistic and target not the wealthy and the famous, but the unprepared." 1 With the explosion of the Internet of Things (IoT) and open source technologies, malicious actors now have a broad surface to target. As the landscape evolves, IT and cybersecurity leaders, as well as decision- makers across all aspects of business must consider the following fact: Web applications remain the No. 1 target. As cybercriminals develop new tactics to access your systems and data, they continue exploiting web applications as, by far, their leading attack vector. One of the main reasons for this, according to the Verizon survey, is that "Too many organizations make their jobs easy. Some companies are failing to take the most basic of security measures." 2 1 "2018 Data Breach Investigations Report," Verizon, March 2018 2 Ibid Web Application Security Buyer's Guide: Critical Capabilities to Protect from Cyberthreats
