What will be the most significant threat to cybersecurity teams in 2018? According to a May 2018 survey from information security company Trustwave, 22 percent of full-time IT professionals said preventing malware, including ransomware, was their biggest security threat and obligation for 2018.
Increasing Threats and Pressures
Trustwave commissioned a third-party research firm to create the 2018 Security Pressures survey, which polled 1,600 security decision-makers and influencers in six countries about the types of information security pressures they face. Their responses helped illustrate the priorities of security teams in their ongoing fight against digital threats.
