2016 Midyear Security Report

In this report, we examine the many ways organizations can and should take action to start improving their defenses.Recommendations from Cisco researchers include:
- Instituting and testing an incident response plan that will enable a swift return to normal business operations following a ransomware attack
- Not blindly trusting HTTPS connections and SSL certificates
- Moving quickly to patch published vulnerabilities in software and systems, including routers and switches that are the components of critical Internet infrastructure
- Educating users about the threat of malicious browser infections
- Understanding what actionable threat intelligence really is
