    2014: Evolving Cyber Threats

    Increasingly sophisticated cyber threats require increasingly sophisticated mitigation and response strategies. In 2014, the Heartbleed bug, along with other large-scale attacks on our nation's businesses, dominated the media headlines, captured our attention, and instilled a sense of fear and uncertainty amongst our organizations' IT and risk business leaders. The mounting capabilities and success rates of increasingly sophisticated and motivated actors and nation-states mean that cybersecurity has risen to the top of every strategic planning meeting and corporate agenda.

In 2014, Sony suffered the most devastating hack of all time, Home Depot faces dozens of lawsuits resulting from its data breach, the JP Morgan Chase attack affected 76 million households and 7 million small businesses, and a year later, Target is still recovering from its breach in 2013. So, with a new year upon us, it's important that we take a step back and review the lessons we've learned in the security space, as well as take a look ahead at what 2015 holds.
