2018 was a year that brought significant changes in the cyberthreat landscape. Those changes originated in discrete developments in motives and tactics of the most important threat agent groups, namely cyber-criminals and state-sponsored actors. Monetization motives have contributed to the appearance of crypto-miners in the top 15 threats. State-sponsored activities have led to the assumption that there is a shift towards reducing the use of complex malicious software and infrastructures and going towards low profile social engineering attacks. These developments are the subject of this threat landscape report.
