Security Threat Report 2011

threat-report-2011IT security and control firm Sophos has today published its Security Threat Report 2011, analysing cybercrime during the last year and looking at IT security trends to watch in 2011.A highlight of the report is the findings of Sophos’s latest ‘Social Security’ survey*, which polls computer users on their experiences of social networking security threats.  The survey charts user experience of social networking, particularly in the workplace.By mid-2010, Facebook recorded half a billion active users, making it not only the largest social networking site, but also one of the most popular destinations on the web.

Unsurprisingly, this massive and committed user base is heavily targeted by scammers and cybercriminals, with the number and diversity of attacks growing steadily throughout 2010 – malware, phishing and spam on social networks have all continued to rise in the past year.
