Symantec Internet Security Threat Report Helps Online Music Store Keep Rocking

By Thomas Beohm, IT Manager at CD Baby

When I read this year's Internet Security Threat Report by Symantec (ISTR), it confirmed how dangerous it is to underestimate cybercriminals. As an online business, CD Baby is completely dependent on our eCommerce site, and any threat poses a serious risk to our business. Cybercriminals are creating new tactics such as watering hole attacks that compromise legitimate business websites, using them as a springboard to attack other organizations. This is especially a risk for smaller businesses.

In fact, I was surprised to see how much of an emphasis cybercriminals are placing on SMBs, with 31 percent of all targeted attacks directed at us. The ISTR called out the overall increase in targeted attacks in 2012, and we've seen some very sophisticated attacks in our company over the past few months, even spoofing our own internal addresses. While we thought this meant a compromise of our accounts, the report showed that this can indeed be a targeted attack as well, and knowing that helps us with our security moving forward.
