EVENTS/DAY

I have aggregated the statistics created from the cyber attacks timelines published in the first three months of 2022. In total I have collected 646 events (7.18 events per day), a noticeable decrease from the 713 events that I collected in  Q1 2021.

Cyber crime continues to lead the Motivations chart with 70.3%, but its percentage is considerably lower than the  value of one year ago (86%), a clear effect of the rise of events motivated by hacktivism, cyber espionage, and even cyber warfare, which are characterizing this last period in light of what is happening in Ukraine. Similarly, malware continues to lead the Attack Techniques chart with 31.3%, very close to 32.3% of one year ago. And even the Target Distribution chart is quite similar to the chart of one year ago, led by Multiple industries with 25.9%, up from 16,7% of one year ago.

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.
