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 began my career as a Trainer of all things computer related. However, I very quickly realized that programming, breaking, and hacking was a lot more fun. I then spent the next few years working on core infrastructure and security services, until I found SharePoint. I am now the founder and owner of SharePlicity, a consulting company that focuses on all areas of Technology. My role within SharePlicity is to help organizations implement technology that will enhance internal and external collaboration, document and records management, automate business processes and of course security controls and protection. I am also an eleven-time Microsoft MVP focusing on Architecture but also cross the boundary into Development. My specialty over the past few years has been security in SharePoint and its surrounding platforms. I can also be found at user groups or conferences speaking, offering advice, spending time in the community, teaching my kids how to code, raspberry PI programming, hacking the planet or building Lego robots.
