Barriers, Challenges and Moving Beyond Buzzwords in Digital Transformation (DX)

‘Digital transformation’ relies too much on technology and not enough on strategy and processes. From a company focused on enabling technology solutions for our clients, we know this sounds a little crazy.

Advanced technologies have paved the way for a new competitive environment, unlike one we’ve seen before. Organisations have turned to adopting the same technologies their newer, younger competitors were built on, in an effort to transform themselves – embarking on what’s become widely known as ‘digital transformation’ or DX.

However, DX doesn’t seem to be paying off for everyone. Last year, businesses spent $1.3 trillion on digital transformation globally, of which
$900 billion was wasted. Closer to home, with only 8% of Australian organisations seeing results from their digital transformation efforts, something clearly isn’t working. We believe the focus needs to shift from technology to strategy – the first step to overcoming barriers to transformation.

Cybercriminals on Cryptocurrency Mining, Craze Going for Data Centers

Cybercriminals have always been financially motivated and cryptocurrency mining is the latest trend in generating revenue by abusing the same age-old malware attack vectors previously associated with ransomware dissemination. The recent Bitcoin craze, with the currency peaking at $19,000 per unit, has focused cybercriminals on crypto mining, instead of traditional ransomware. In fact, crypto currency-enabled malware is increasingly outdoing ransomware in popularity, with the rise in adoption picking up significantly in the past six months.

Cybercriminals on Cryptocurrency Mining, Craze Going for Data Centers

Bitdefender’s telemetry has been studying this phenomenon and today releases an in depth report into the ways cybercriminals are targeting cryptomining. Cryptojacking Whitepaper which will teach more about the emergence of cryptocurrency as a security concern.

  • The true magnitude of the problem – One of the most interesting attacks involved the use of industrial control systems. The industrial control systems, supervisory control and data acquisition servers of a water utility in Europe were used for the first time to mine Monero. A scary thought
  • Impact in the data centre – The more cryptocurrency has been mined, the more resource-intensive the process becomes. This makes it unfeasible for cybercriminals to target and control pools of individual users. It is expected that large data centers and cloud infrastructures are next in line
  • Country-by-country breakout of cryptomining and how it compares to the trend in ransomware reporting

One reason for the growth of crypto mining is from the emergence of browser-based web scripts that make it easy for cybercriminals to compromise high-traffic websites and plant cryptocurrency mining script. This is often done instead of deploying traditional spear phishing campaigns to infect a large number of victims, as ransomware does.
