SANS Institute Report on Top Cyber Risks

The SANS Institute published a report Tuesday highlighting the top cyber risks based on data collected from government and the private sector. According to the report, websites and unpatched software are the greatest cyber risks.

More than 60 percent of attacks on the Internet are against websites and often take the form of “convert[ing] trusted websites into malicious websites,” according to the report. The other main focus is on commonly used software, such as Adobe Reader, Microsoft Office, Adobe Flash, and Quicktime, in which clients using the software do not update security problems in a timely fashion.
