Once again, it is Cybersecurity awareness month and we’ll be talking with Ryan Kalember about the latest threats and other activities he and Proofpoint have going on this month.

When it comes to threats, some tactics aren’t changing, though they’re still effective. There are some notable shifts though:
– Crews using Office 365 for lateral movement
– FIN7 reborn
– A sudden interest in exploits
– Increased patience and increased focus on the individual as the key to an attack
SMB attacks look very different from large enterprise campaigns
