A Taxonomy of Digital Threats

A Framework for Understanding Digital Threat Types, Attack Tactics, and Risk Protection Strategies

For most organizations, digital engagement means business. Today’s institutions invest in digital platforms to engage with customers and ease support.

These attacks are facilitated by a no-cost social landscape, low technical barriers, ease of target acquisition and payload delivery, and broad access to potential victims through these platforms.
