Paper - The Best of the 2014 InfoSec Threat Reports

This paper is a threat report derived from the 31 information security threat reports published in 2014. Basically, I read all of the 2014 threat reports so you don’t have to. This document contains the best parts of the threat reports. I’ve also listed all the reports included in the review and enumerated the best reports incase you want to read some of them yourself.

Though the threat reports are bent in the direction of the author’s commercial interests, they are worth reading. A big “thank you” to the vendors who spend the resources to put these out. I hope this summary is useful to you.
