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. The report further revealed that as the media and broadcasting industry are increasingly conducting more business online as a growing demand from customers, there are projections of revenue increases of $100 billion by 2020 but the threat of having their websites forced offline and becoming unavailable to customers represents a serious business risk.
