In our end of year threat report we look at the most significant cyber threats of 2019, including DNS Hijacking and targeted ransomware. We also explore the go-to tools that cyber criminals are using for capturing data and evading detection, from remote access Trojans to hiding threats in encrypted traffic.
When organizations have dozens of security products installed and still get breached, it begs the question: How much security is enough? How many products does an organization need? How much should be spent on security? We aim to answer these questions through a double-blind survey of approximately 80 security professionals, along with expert commentary.
Increased spending does not always translate into greater security capability. Other factors must be considered, such as expertise and influence.
Mid-size organizations with 1000 to 9999 employees are struggling the most to adequately secure their environments.
Overall, organizations do not think they can afford the security they need, no matter what size they are or how much they are currently spending.
The bigger the organization, the easier it is to influence third parties that affect its security posture.

Over the past decade, Cisco has published a wealth of security and threat intelligence information for security professionals interested in the state of global cybersecurity. These comprehensive reports have provided detailed accounts of threat landscapes and their effects on organizations, as well as best practices to defend against the adverse impacts of data breaches.
In our new approach to thought leadership, Cisco Security is publishing a series of research-based, data-driven studies. We've expanded the number of titles to include different reports for security professionals with different interests. Calling on the depth and breadth of expertise from threat researchers and innovators in the security industry, the 2019 series includes the Data Privacy Benchmark Study, Threat Report, CISO Benchmark Study and Email Cybersecurity Report. Other reports will be released throughout the year.
