Zero Trust cyber security from Check Point and CDW



Cybercrime will cost the world US$6 trillion a year by 2021, up from US$3 trillion in 2015*.

In the past six months, the world has gone online, almost overnight. This has changed not only consumer behaviour, but also how IT leaders have to approach their infrastructure, applications, remote access and cloud adoption.



As quickly as businesses are adopting the cloud, threat actors are adapting their practices. Common threats have morphed, become more sophisticated, and are targeting users at home, behind the firewall and in the cloud. According to the CYBER ATTACK TRENDS: 2020 MID-YEAR REPORT from Check Point these are some of the more common threats currently keeping security professionals up at night:

  • Double Extortion – Not only do hackers download data before encryption to ensure you pay the ransom or they will publish your data.
  • Cyber Warfare – Cybercriminals are taking the fight to countries and businesses using advanced cyber tactics to gather intelligence and package it in a way where they seem to tackle common issues and problems.
  • Mobile – Increased use of mobile devices means renewed infection vectors, Check Point cites that in one example a large international corporation’s Mobile Device Management (MDM) system was used to distribute malware to more than 75% of managed mobile devices.
  • Cloud – Cloud security is now even more critical than ever, following the rapid expansion into the cloud misconfigured or unprotected cloud assets are being exploited, including attacks on public cloud players.

What can you do?

Thanks to the Cybersecurity Insiders CLOUD SECURITY Report sponsored by Check Point, we are offering you a high-level view of where most vulnerabilities in the cloud lie and how user behaviour is enabling cybercriminals.

Download the full report and garner a full understanding of why when asked about what are the most significant security threats facing public clouds, organisations ranked misconfiguration of the cloud platform (68%) highest. This is up from the third spot on last year's survey—followed by unauthorised access (58%), insecure interfaces (52%), and the hijacking of accounts (50%).
