As employees and IT professionals return from the holidays, many are doing so with 2014 New Year’s resolutions in mind. For IT pros, we hope that one of your resolutions is to bolster your organization’s security and defenses in 2014. One of the rising threats that many IT professionals should be concerned about defending against in the new year is advanced persistent threats (APTs). According to the 2014 State of the Endpoint Report, conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Lumension, 40 percent of organizations experienced an APT attack in the last 12 months. Paul Zimski of Lumension provides an overview of many of the key terms and themes associated with APTs to prevent you from becoming one of them.
