Digital Shadows Global Report Reveals New Media and IoT Increase Threats to Media Organizations

Digital Shadows, a provider of cyber situational awareness, released its Shooting the Messenger: Understanding the Threats to the Media and Broadcasting Industry report which revealed that revenue generating websites are a threat to media businesses’ bottom line and are increasing with malvertising, extortion, propaganda, account take over and data leakage being the most common attacks targeted towards media and broadcast organizations.  The Digital Shadows report further revealed that the insecurity surrounding Internet of Things (IoT) devices, such as Wi-Fi-enabled cameras, surveillance systems, lighting, and even fridges, is presenting cybercriminals and hacktivists with more opportunities to target media and broadcast organizations.
