Trend Micro 2014 Annual Security Roundup & CNY Media Luncheon
08:34 AM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

March 4, 2015 — We were invited to the Trend Micro 2014 Annual Security Roundup & CNY Media Luncheon. Take a look at the cybersecurity threats Trend Micro tackled in 2014.



Prolific cyberattacks against Sony capped off one of the biggest years on record for cyber security. Approximately 100 terabytes of data were compromised and up to $100 million in damages were inflicted during this headline-grabbing incident as the Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), annual security roundup report, “The High Cost of Complacency,” analyzes this and other notable activity throughout 2014. The year’s happenings reinforced that cybercriminals are relentless with ever-increasing levels of sophistication and tenacity.

Additional findings include confirmation of Trend Micro’s late 2013 prediction that one sizable data breach would occur every month—further solidifying the need for organizations to protect their networks and implement intrusion detection.
