A global virus outbreak, an economic downturn, and a mass migration to remote work has provided us with a unique opportunity to diagnose this unprecedented period of tumult as it reshapes our world in sudden, chaotic ways. We’re excited to introduce you to the 2020 National / Industry / Cloud Exposure Report (NICER): the Rapid7 Research team's dense, data-rich tome of exposure observations across countries, industries, and services, with actionable security advice. NICER dives into and captures aspects that contribute to the overall global network we rely on for commerce, culture, connection–essentially, our livelihoods.

In this report, the Rapid7 Research team analyzes the internet risk landscape, measures the geographic distribution of common exposures, breaks down their findings by country, industry, and protocol, and assesses the effect of the pandemic and technological movements to the cloud.
Here are some of the key trends and takeaways:
Without a doubt, there has been encouraging progress in cybersecurity–even in the face of a pandemic and recession. However, despite the gains, highly-sophisticated, well-resourced attackers understand the weaknesses in the design, deployment, access, and maintenance of systems, and they continue to attack internet targets with relative impunity. IT and cybersecurity professionals need help from others who can advise, educate, and guide them to effectively secure their infrastructure.
Following the footsteps of Rapid7’s National Exposure Index, and the Industry Cloud-Exposure Report, the National / Industry / Cloud Exposure Report connects the dots and brings both of these worlds together into one.
