Are we really keeping up with the latest threats. Bradley Barth’s state it elearly:  The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) received nearly 352,000 complaints related to cybercrime activity that collectively was responsible for $2.7 billion in losses, according to the agency’s 2018 Internet Crime Report (2018 Internet Crime Report). I enjoy how we check the boxes regarding cyber security awareness.   When you read the report its clear that we are not doing a good job helping others understand the cybersecurity security landscape.  Month after month, we see what’s happening, but until it hits home, I guess we now immune to the threats.  I wonder for those who have had a breach what they thought about the threat landscape before they were attacked?  Enjoy the report.  It really says alot.  Combine it with other reports and its obvious that we are all missing the mark.  Whats the solution?
