The latest report is out...
Our friends over at SonicWall have released their annual Cyber Threat Report. It shows a lot of reasons for small businesses to be extra alert when it comes to cyber security in 2019.
The cyber arms race does not discriminate or differentiate. If a network, identity, device or data is valuable — particularly information tied to intellectual property, financials, sensitive files, critical infrastructure or political leverage — cyber-criminals will identify, target and ruthlessly attack.
To promote global awareness and facilitate important dialogues, SonicWall remains steadfast in its commitment to research, analyze and share threat intelligence via the 2019 SonicWall Cyber Threat Report.
Some key findings of the report are:
There were 10.5 Billion Malware Attacks in 2018 (up 22% since 2017)
There were 206.5 Million Ransomware Attacks in 2018 (up 11% since 2017)
There were 3.9 Trillion Intrusion Attempts in 2018 (up 38% since 2017)
There were 26.8 Million Web App Attacks in 2018 (up 56% since 2017)
Those are some big numbers. The landscape isn't looking to become any safer anytime soon either.
