As I promised few days ago, I have aggregated and analyzed the events collected in the cyber attacks timelines for the whole 2019, producing some (hopefully) interesting stats. At the end the total sample is composed of 1802 events, which is a sharp increase in comparison with the 1337 of 2018. Feel free to browse the charts to have an overall idea for the threat landscape of the year just gone.

As always, bear in mind that the sample refers exclusively to the attacks included in my timelines, aiming to provide an high level overview of the “cyber landscape”.

Keep on supporting the blog, and of course follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates. Also feel free to submit remarkable incidents that in your opinion deserve to be included in the timelines (and charts).

    Hello, I’m taking the liberty to bother you. I’m a college student from China, and I’m working on a lecture presentation related to cybersecurity. I accidentally discovered your cyber attack data analysis charts, which I think is very valuable for reference. However, the 2019 pictures are only available for a single month. I’m not sure if you could kindly provide me with the analysis chart for the entire year of 2019(excel will be the best). I would be very appreciate that.

    Hi! Is it possible to get a master table of all the incidents of 2019?

    Would be very helpful to have the information collated in one place.

    Thank you.

    I’m a PhD and I’m doing a research with cyber attacks data.
    I would like to ask if it is possible to have the csv/excel with the daily number of attacks for 2019 (as in the 2018 and 2017 master tables)?

    Thank you so much in advance.

    Hi, May I request the csv export with all incidents from 2011, if possible.

    I am also conducting an academic research. This use will be acknowledged, if the research is published as an academic writing.

    Thank you
