The 2021 NTT Ltd.
Global Threat Intelligence Report identifies the threats organisations faced globally over the last year, provides operational, tactical, and strategic recommendations they should consider implementing to manager risk.

In this year’s Report, compiled by our parent company NTT. Ltd. we continue reinforcing the concepts of ‘cyber-resilience’ and ‘secure by design’ solutions, but also include discussions related to trust. Organisations can no longer simply assign blind trust to new alliances, partners, or vendors. It is also not wise to trust unvetted access to your organization’s data. We devoted an entire section of this year’s Report to discussing trust and briefly review the ‘cyber-resiliency’ and ‘secure by design’ concepts.

Global Key Findings

Amplified attacks o‌n finance, manufacturing and healthcare dominated above all others.

Changing face of malware

Cryptocurrency Miners thrive

Coinminers were 41% of all named malware, with XMRig representing 82% of all coinminer activity.

COVID-19 emboldens threat groups

Criminal and nation-state threat groups were very active, and used COVID-19 to enable attacks.

A year of privacy and protection is the ‘new normal’

Data privacy regulations spread around the globe as privacy localised.
