WHAT? I can't hear you. I am listening to another podcast featuring a Netskope expert. Wait, you've finished listening to the podcasts featuring Mike Anderson, Jason Clark/James Robinson, and Steve Riley already? And you are ready for another? Okayyyyyyy, fine.
How about one featuring Netskope's Ray Canzanese chatting with Jeff Reinke of Security Breach Podcast -- a weekly discussion of new developments and the latest cybersecurity threats, including ransomware, malware, phishing schemes, DDoS attacks and more, facing the U.S. industrial sector.
Netskope Threat Labs, a leading provider of threat analysis and cyber defense strategies for cloud-based vulnerabilities, recently published their most recent Threat Labs Report. Findings specific to manufacturing include:
Cloud-delivered malware increased from 32 percent to 66 percent in the past twelve months, led by downloads from popular apps like Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive and Gmail.
The report showed that 94 percent of users downloaded data from an average of 17 different cloud apps each month.
Over the past twelve months, the number of users uploading to cloud apps in manufacturing increased 27 percent.
Emotet, AgentTesla, and BlackBasta were among the top malware and ransomware groups targeting manufacturing in the past twelve months.
Malware described as file-based exploits saw a significant uptick in use by these black hat organizations.
Our guest for today’s episode is Netskope's Threat Labs Director Ray Canzanese. He offers some insight on how the industrial sector can continue to utilize the cloud without negatively impacting security.
