I have aggregated the statistics created from the cyber attacks timelines published in the first three months of 2023. In total I have collected 946 events (10.51 events per day), a noticeable decrease (nearly 30%) from the 646 events that I collected in  Q1 2022.

Cyber crime continues to lead the Motivations chart with 82.9%, definitely an important increase fro 70.3% of Q1 2022 and back to values closer to Q1 2021 (86%). Similarly, malware continues to lead the Attack Techniques chart with 38.7% up from 31.3% of 2022 and 32.3% of two years ago. The Target Distribution chart confirms Multiple industries at the first place with 22.9& down from 25.9of 2022 and  up from 16,7% of two years 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.

Creating the timelines is a very time-consuming task.
