Released Cisco 2015 Midyear Security Report

Each year Cisco releases a Security Report, and it is that time again. The opening statement in the report states:

The tactics developed by malware authors and online criminals have shown increasing sophistication over the past several years. Recent Cisco security reports have chronicled such innovation in the shadow economy, along with security professionals’ fight to stay ahead of adversaries“.

As you can imagine the report goes into detail and elaborates on this statement covering such items as:

  1. Specific Vulnerabilities being used heavily
  2. Exploit Kits being used
  3. Anonymous Services
  4. Ransomware
  5. Malware
  6. Spam
  7. Overall industry approach to security

I am currently a SharePoint MVP focused on Architecture but also cross the boundary into Development and Security. I am often found at user groups, conferences speaking, offering advice, spending time in the community, teaching my kids how to code, raspberry PI programming, hacking the planet and sometimes building Lego robots.
