The Nuix Black Report presents the results of a confidential survey of 70 professional hackers and penetration testers at DEFCON, the world’s largest hacking and security conference.
By examining the security landscape from the hacker’s perspective, the Nuix Black Report has revealed results that are contrary to the conventional understanding of cybersecurity. These include:
- Respondents said traditional countermeasures such as firewalls and antivirus almost never slowed them down but endpoint security technologies were more effective at stopping attacks;
- More than half of respondents changed their methodologies with every target, severely limiting the effectiveness of security defences / defences based on known files and attacks;
- Around one-third of attackers said their target organizations never detected their activities.
