Trellix and CSIS Find Organizations Outmatched by Nation-State Cyber Threat Actors

Report Highlights Increased Government Support Required to Defend Against Sophisticated Nation-States

Today Trellix, the cybersecurity company delivering the future of extended detection and response (XDR), and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) released a global report, In the Crosshairs: Organizations and Nation-State Cyber Threats, examining security professionals’ mindsets towards nation-state actors, the extent they are being targeted, how nation-state actors differ from other cyber criminals and how they view the role of government in responding to attacks. The report found Russia and China among the most likely suspects of being behind successful cyberattacks resulting in data loss, service disruption, and industrial espionage, which led to significant costs to the organizations attacked.

“As geopolitical tensions rise, the likelihood of nation-state cyberattacks rises as well,” said Bryan Palma, CEO of Trellix. “Cybersecurity talent shortages, outdated IT infrastructure, and remote work are the greatest challenges in today’s operating environment. Organizations must improve their automation, remediation, and resiliency capabilities to defend against increasingly sophisticated attacks.”
