EVENTS/DAY

It’s time to publish the statistics derived from the Cyber Attacks Timelines of February (part I and part II). In February I have collected 240 events, the largest number recorded over the last 12 months, caused primarily by the constantly growing number of ransomware attacks and the consequences of the Accellion zero day.

Once again, cyber crime leads the Motivations chart with 85.2% (it was 90% in January.) And similarly, malware continues to lead the Attack Techniques chart with 28.3% (it was 36.1% in January.) The Target Distribution chart shows a change: healthcare organizations jump at number one with 12.1% while campaigns against multiple targets plunge at number two with 11.3% (from 23.1%.)

The statistics are also available as an infographic.

As always bear in mind that the sample refers exclusively to the attacks included in my timelines, available from public sources such as blogs and news sites. Obviously the sample cannot be complete, but only aims to provide an high level overview of the threat landscape.

Finally, please support my work, sharing the content, and of course follow @paulsparrows on Twitter for the latest updates.
