Today, Black Hat releases its third annual research report entitled, Portrait of an Imminent Cyber Threat. This report is based on survey responses from nearly 600 Black Hat USA attendees – a community populated by the brightest minds in the Information Security Industry, holding critical security roles across multiple industries including government, financial services, healthcare, energy, telecommunications, and utilities.

This year’s research explores issues on a national scale and raises concerns about potential threats to the U.S’s critical infrastructure, tools available for nation state attacks, WikiLeaks and more. Respondents shared thoughts on cyber attacks related to the U.S. elections, the WannaCry ransomware worm and more.
