I am happy to start 2021 with a big news, and announce that I have introduced an important change. The cyber attacks timeline is now interactive. Of course the table format is always available in case you want to search for specific events and export them in XLS format, however it is now possible to browse the single events directly from the timeline in a more interactive manner.

With the new interactive timeline you can drill down into each event and explore the details. You can pinch and zoom, and also filter events based on the name of the targeted entity and the class (like Cyber Crime, Cyber Espionage, Cyberwarfare and Hacktivism). Of course each class has a different icon to quickly visualize the nature of the event. Clicking on the icon opens the event’s details.

In this timeline I have collected 83 events, a number clearly lower than the values we have been used to during the past months, so it really looks like the holiday season has also led to a break in the attack rate. But don’t be too much disenchanted: the new year started exactly how it ended with the ransomware dominating the threat landscape.

The Cyber Espionage front is also quite hot, as usual, with multiple operations by well-known threat actors such as APT37 and APT 35: North Korea and Iran are the most active actors.

Thanks for sharing the timeline and supporting my work in spreading the risk awareness across the community. Also, don’t forget to follow @paulsparrows on Twitter, or even connect on Linkedin, for the latest updates.
