As 2018 came to a close, I stopped to reflect about the various threats we saw this year – particularly in Europe. While Europe continued to struggle with targeted attacks from organized cyber criminal groups and cyber espionage groups, there was yet another threat that we observed challenging numerous organizations in nearly every industry. Some may think the answer is ransomware. Sure, ransomware continues to be a threat, but we have actually observed a continued decrease in ransomware detections. This is a trend that started back in late 2017 and has been fairly consistent.
