Brook Chelmo joins us in updating 2021 cyber threats as he discusses what SonicWall has found in its 2021 Cyber Threat Report Mid-Year Update. And spoiler alert – it’s been bad. Brook also takes us through other highlights of the report, including which parts of the world are seeing the most activity, some dips in malware and non-standard port attacks, and continued improvement in never before seen threat detection.
