CrowdStrike 2023 Global Threat Report: Executive Summary
The latest edition of the CrowdStrike Global Threat Report comes at an important time for protectors around the world. As organizations focus on managing remote and hybrid teams, operationalizing years of digital transformation and navigating an uncertain global economy, adversaries have become more sophisticated, relentless and damaging in their attacks. As a result, a number of disruptive trends emerged in 2022 that threaten productivity and global stability.
The year started ominously as Russia’s deadly war of aggression in Ukraine brought about a terrible human toll, threatened international order and put countless global organizations at risk of spillover cyberattacks. At the same time, China state-nexus adversaries ramped up their cyber espionage campaigns, and Iranian actors launched destructive “lock-and-leak” operations using ransomware.
