Click through for a look back at the last 16 years and the rise of cyber attacks, as identified by Venafi.

Today, we live in a very different world where cyber threats and attacks are recognized as significant global, political and commercial challenges with serious financial and reputational consequences.

The cyber criminal community has evolved from pranksters, lone wolves, and organized gangs to nation-states and hacktivist groups whose primary results have been increased costs and lost productivity. As enterprises and governments connect literally everything to the Internet, the size of their attack surface has grown, opening more opportunities for cyber criminals. Many of their current exploits are going unnoticed.
