Rapid7 Threat Report

Using threat intelligence and data science to shed light on your unique threat landscape

The “threat landscape” is a moving, shifting form that will look different to different organizations—it all depends on where you are standing. Some people may be staring at a wide open grassland where the landscape is understood and the threats are easy to identify (though no less deadly), and others may be facing a dense jungle of hidden threats. While it's possible to develop a universal threat landscape that may be useful for general security research and developing high-level incident response frameworks, it is more useful for defenders to have a solid understanding of their own unique threat landscape.

The Rapid7 Threat Report leverages intelligence from Rapid7’s Insight Platform, Rapid7 Managed Services, Rapid7 Incident Response engagements, and the Metasploit community to put this shifting landscape into perspective. It gives you a clear picture of the threats that you face within your unique industry, and how those threats change throughout the year.
