Re: Transition from second-tier to first tier
I think that one of the most scaring results proposed by the report is that despite the number of days threat agents were present on a victim's network before detection is decreasing (14 days less than 2012), its median number is still high (229). This means that bad actors are able to remain undetected within networks of their victims for more than eight months. Amazing!

Transition from second-tier to first tier
Interesting article. I think one thing to be aware of is the hierarchy of how these cyerattack regions are rated. If the SEA and Iranian based cyber attacks are non-customized and don't provide them prolonged access then we dictate them to be a tier 2. Rhetorically, how long until these entities refine their processes to become a tier-1 actor like China and Russia? I would say not too much longer. I think the most prevalent question here is, how to hinder their activity before they reach that point? Any thoughts on methods to slow their detrimental expansion?
