EVENTS/DAY

I have aggregated the statistics created from the cyber attacks timelines published during Q4 2022 (October, November, and December.) In total I collected 817 events (vs. 875 in Q34, 694 in Q2, and 646 in Q1) corresponding to 8.88 events per day, despite the peak has been reached in q3, the level of activity remains pretty sustained.

Cyber crime continues to lead the Motivations chart with 81%, ten points more than Q2 (71%), and Q1 (70.3%). Similarly, malware continues to lead the Attack Techniques chart with 36.1% up from both Q2 (30.7%) and Q1 (31.3%). And the Target Distribution chart is once again led by Multiple Industries with 20.6%,down from both Q2 (24.4%) and Q1 (25.9%).

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.
