Report: Cybersecurity Defenders Fight Back Against Manipulated Reality

VMware StaffAugust 2, 2021

VMware’s seventh annual Global Incident Response Threat Report analyzes how attackers are manipulating reality to reshape the modern threat landscape.

The report found a drastic rise in destructive attacks, where adversaries deploy advanced techniques to deliver more targeted, sophisticated attacks that distort digital reality. Examples include business communications compromise (BCC) or the manipulation of time. However, defenders are struggling to counter these complex attacks and gain visibility into new environments, such as the cloud, containers and business communication applications. This is leading to an embrace of active defense techniques as incident responders deal with the extreme stress of their jobs.
