About our Advanced Persistent Threats news

Latest news on advanced persistent threats (APTs), stealthy cyber-attacks typically conducted by nation-states or state-sponsored groups that gain unauthorised access to a computer network and remain undetected for an extended period.

APT attacks are typically motivated by political or economic goals and target major business sectors such as government, defence, financial services, legal services, industrial, telecoms, and consumer goods.

The attackers often use traditional espionage techniques such as social engineering, human intelligence, and infiltration to gain access to a physical location to enable network attacks. APT attacks often install custom malware to achieve their objectives.

The median 'dwell-time', or the time an APT attack goes undetected, differs widely between regions, with the mean dwell-time for 2018 in the Americas being 71 days, EMEA being 177 days, and APAC being 204 days.
