The data within this document is based on the collective experiences, observations and concerns of the global operational security community. NETSCOUT Arbor collected this data through a survey conducted in October 2017.
Since its inception, the WISR has been based upon survey data collected from those who are directly involved in day-to-day operational security, and this is our continued approach. The WISR has changed immeasurably in terms of its scope and scale over the years, but the core goal is still to provide real insight into infrastructure security from an operational perspective.
This document highlights key industry trends and threats facing network operators, along with the strategies used to mitigate them.
