I have aggregated the statistics created from the cyber attacks timelines published in the second quarter of 2022 (April, May, and June.) In total I collected 694 events (vs. 646 in Q1) corresponding to 7.63 events per day, a noticeable increase compared to 7.18 events per day that I collected in  Q1 2022.

Cyber crime continues to lead the Motivations chart with 71% in line with Q1 (70.3%). Similarly, malware continues to lead the Attack Techniques chart with 30.7% very close to the value of Q1 (31.3%). And even the Target Distribution chart is pretty similar to the chart of Q1, led by Multiple industries with 24.4% (it was 25.9% in Q1.)

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.
