Malware variants previously focused on the financial sector are now successfully attacking non-banking targets, according to Blueliv. A higher level of collaboration and intelligence-sharing between industries is ever-more crucial in the fight against cybercrime.
As the ‘public profile’ of cybercrime continues to increase, enterprises are encouraged to look at how they keep their businesses and customers safe by sharing intelligence, best practice and defense measures. “When cyberattacks in one industry make headlines, organizations in other industries start to take notice. And when other organizations take notice and start taking proactive steps to strengthen their security posture, that is good news for all of us: the fight against cybercrime is a collaborative effort,” said Ramon Vicens, CTO at Blueliv.
