We recognize that in today’s world, security leaders must expand their focus beyond technologies and their vulnerabilities. To effectively manage risk, security leaders must continually analyze the global threat landscape and understand how business decisions can influence their organization’s threat profile. Similarly, business leaders require awareness of their security posture, risk exposure, and cyber-defense strategy that can affect business operations.
Through the “BlackBerry Global Threat Intelligence Report,” modern leaders can have timely access to this important information. Based on the telemetry obtained from our own artificial intelligence (AI)-driven products and analytical capabilities, and complemented by other public and private intelligence sources, our global BlackBerry Threat Research and Intelligence team provides actionable intelligence about attacks, threat actors, and campaigns so that you can make well-informed decisions and take prompt, effective actions.
This is precisely what we have worked to distill into the concise quarterly report that I am pleased to release publicly today. To create this new “Global Threat Intelligence Report,” the team analyzed more than 1.5 million stopped cyberattacks, occurring between Dec. 1, 2022, and Feb. 28, 2023. Below are some of the highlights.
Key Report Highlights
The report also covers notable threat actors and cyber weapons, most consequential attacks, and — most importantly — it also provides actionable defensive countermeasures, in the form of MITRE ATT&CK® and MITRE D3FEND™ mappings deployed during this period. Finally, we offer an analysis of the forecasting accuracy of our previous report, and a list of insightful key takeaways based on the events of the past months.
We hope that you will value all the detailed and actionable data presented in this new report. Once again, I would like to express my gratitude to the authors, the highly skilled global researchers on the BlackBerry Threat Research and Intelligence team. Their ongoing efforts to produce cutting-edge research empower us to continuously improve BlackBerry’s data- and Cylance® AI-driven products and services.
