Cybercriminals Shift Focus to Middle East and North Africa

Project Desert Host provides data to help you prepare

Over the past year, it has become easier for cybercriminals to launch campaigns involving ransomware, banking trojans, exploit kits, and online scams from countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. One reason is the increase in bulletproof hosting providers in MENA countries, which is made possible by better technology and communications infrastructure, locally.

Symantec’s Managed Adversary Threat Intelligence (MATI) team is researching these evolving changes and published their latest findings in “Project Desert Host,” to help organizations better understand:

  • The MENA countries in which threat actors are using bulletproof hosting services
  • The victims that are being targeted in MENA
  • The tools, techniques and processes (TTP) that threat actors are employing in the MENA region

Download the “Project Desert Host” report to get more insights on this growing threat and learn how you can better strengthen your security posture.
