Definition Edit

A threat landscape (also called a threat environment) is

a collection of threats in a particular domain or context, with information on identified vulnerable assets, threats, risks, threat actors and observed trends."[1]

Overview Edit

It "is a dynamically changing ecosystem. Main forces contributing to these changes are: increased complexity of IT-products, various external forces such as financial crisis, new vulnerabilities, sophistication of available tools and attacks, available resources (both personnel and monetary), available skills, networks enabling knowledge transfer and growth of illegal profits in cyberspace."[2]
