In this time of change and adaptation, Booz Allen’s newly published Cyber Threat Trends Outlook explores what we know about upcoming cybersecurity challenges, and provides guidance on how to prepare for them.

Threats to cybersecurity are part of our everyday life, routinely afflicting even the most agile, innovative, and admired organizations around the world. Today’s digital connectedness generates extensive opportunities, but also creates new opportunities for threat actors to infiltrate and inflict damage. From abusing of Internet of Things to exploiting vulnerable supply chains to penetrating critical infrastructure, today’s threat landscape is a ripe hunting ground for sophisticated attackers. Now more than ever, your organization must prepare and proactively build advanced cyber defenses to mitigate these attackers.
