Understand the threat landscape with fresh intelligence.

The annual X-Force Threat Intelligence Index sheds light on the biggest cyber risks that organisations face today, with data and insights collected over the past year. Based on IBM X-Force analysis of threat data from hundreds of millions of endpoints and servers, spam sensors, and IBM Security managed services and incident response engagements, the X-Force Threat Intelligence Index gives security, risk management, and IT teams clear insights into attack methods and the weaknesses threat actors attempt to exploit.

  • The explosive growth of attacks on operational technology (OT) in the enterprise
  • Most common initial infection vectors, from common phishing and credential theft to more rare attacks
  • Geographical breakdown of threats and threat actors, top countries affected by spam, and regional events that could be targeted by cyber criminal scammers
  • Industry trends including retail climbing the ranks of the top targeted industries in the past year
