    The Evolution of Cyber Crime: A new approach to risk is critical

    Evolution never stops. This is most evident in the world of cyber crime. Threats constantly mutate, technology progresses and the lines of responsibility blur. Protecting against new forms of attack requires experience of how criminals change their methods. Defenders must use intelligence on adversaries and understand the vulnerabilities of their organization to build a picture of the situation.
