I have aggregated the statistics created from the cyber attacks timelines published so far in 2021, corresponding to 713 events (7.9 events/day). Cyber crime leads the Motivations chart with 86% (it was 85.82% in Q1 2020.) Malware continues to lead the Attack Techniques chart with 32.3% (it was 37.8% in Q1 2020, but you must consider that too many ransomware attacks appear as “Unknown”.) Multiple industries lead the Target Distribution chart with 16.7% (it was 17/8% in Q1 2020).

What is interesting to notice is the growth of the impact of vulnerabilities,visible in the Daily Impact chart.

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.
