One notorious example is TeamTNT, one of the first hacking groups shifting its focus to cloud-oriented services.

Digital Transformation Post-Pandemic Stats & Research

New Trend Micro research found that more than 90% of IT decision-makers believe their organization would be willing to compromise on cybersecurity in favor of other priorities like digital transformation, productivity or customer experience.

TikTok Phishing Threatens to Delete Influencers' Accounts

Researchers have observed a new phishing campaign primarily targeting high-profile TikTok accounts belonging to influencers, brand consultants, production studios, and influencers' managers. Abnormal Security researchers who spotted the attacks, observed two activity peaks while observing the distribution of emails in this particular campaign, on October 2, 2021, and on November 1, 2021, so a new round will likely start in a couple of weeks.
