The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released a new report on the top malware strains of 2021, which you can read here.
The value of this information is it identifies several key pieces of malware, and some motivations of the malware authors, as well as what can be done to mitigate.
Many of the malware that is being scene has pieces of codes that have been in use for 5 years, meaning we are seeing variations of many pieces of effective malware in the past. Additionally, much of what is being scene is trojans, information stealers, or ransomware of various forms. Staying protected from these threats can be accomplished through utilizing methods and methodologies that have been present for almost a decade at this time, but the evasive nature of threats means that there becomes an increased value in SOC / MDR services that can help identify threats quickly.
CISA recommends (as does London Security) to use many of the methods of protection that are currently considered best practices today. Here are some examples:
Understanding recurring threats that have been monitored across the past year can be a difficult task, and remaining vigilant can require a team of professionals, whereas many companies have the barest of budgets and employees to make their security function. London Security works with businesses of all sizes to provide SOC & MDR services to help guarantee coverage of businesses 24/7/365 - and offers day to day management of security solutions in order to guarantee your business is capable of surviving a threat.
