  • Dridex and Crypto-Locker: very well-orchestrated nuisances
  • TV5-Monde: the rise of sabotage attacks
  • Data theft: more and more cases publicized
  • SCADA, connected cars and Internet of things: targets for future attacks
  • ...

The report presents also (in Chapter 3) the different productions of the Cert-IST in 2015 and associated statistics. We can see a constant increase of the various publications over the past six years.
