Cyberattacks continue to be a cause for concern for businesses. Although great strides have been made to combat this issue, the ability of threat actors to adapt, combined with other factors such as the rise in remote working or the increase in the number of devices with Internet access, means that cybercrime persists.
According to a study by Cybersecurity Ventures, a cyberattack took place every 39 seconds in 2023, which translates into over 2,200 cases per day. This contrasts with the data for 2022, when an incident occurred every 44 seconds. This faster attack rate concerns industry professionals, who are facing increasingly sophisticated threats that have been designed to circumvent cybersecurity protocols.
It is important for organizations to be aware of the types of cyberattack currently on the cybersecurity professionals’ radar so that they can adapt their protocols to deal with these threats more effectively.
