Cybersecurity, Verizon alert: “Attacks boom in the last year”

-

It is an “unprecedented” year in the history of cyber security that analyzed the 2022 edition of the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report just released and which records, among the “particularly alarming” data, a significant increase in ransomware attacks with an increase equal to 13% in just one year. This is the growth analyzed by Verizon “greater than the last 5 years combined”. From the Report, which sheds light on some of the main issues affecting the international cybersecurity landscape, it emerges that while criminals try to exploit increasingly sophisticated forms of malware, ransomware continues to prove particularly effective in exploiting and monetizing illegal access. to private information. Organized crime, according to Verizon analysts, continues to be a pervasive force in the world of cyber security: around 4 out of 5 violations can be attributed to organized crime, and external actors are around 4 times more likely to cause violations in an organization with respect to internal actors. Rising geopolitical tensions are also leading to greater sophistication, visibility and awareness of cyber attacks linked to nation states. “The last three years have confronted companies with new challenges related to the way they work and data management, which cybercriminals have shown themselves ready to turn into attack opportunities, exploiting every flaw in the computer systems” he stresses to Adnkronos. Ali Neil, Verizon Business Director of International Security Solutions. “For many organizations, especially smaller ones, implementing widespread security measures is neither cost effective nor feasible,” however Neil notes that “any improvement in this area, no matter how small, can have highly beneficial effects when it’s about detecting attacks and deterring cybercriminals. ” “In an increasingly digital era, it is important that companies take advantage of all possible security measures, educate their staff to identify potential threats, but – Neil warns – just as important is to have an open mind to the latest technologies to always be one step ahead of potential attackers. ” In the Verizon Report, analysts point out that for many companies, the last year has also been dominated by supply chain problems and this trend has also been reflected in the cybersecurity landscape. 62% of System Intrusion incidents occurred through an organization’s partner. Compromising the right partner is a force multiplier for cybercriminals and highlights the challenges many organizations face in securing their supply chain. Speaking in detail about the human element, people remain – by far – the weakest link in an organization’s cybersecurity defenses. 25% of the total breaches detected in the 2022 report were the result of social engineering attacks and, if you add human error and misuse, the human element represents 82% of the breaches analyzed in the last year . Dave Hylender, lead author of the Dbir, assures that “now in its 15th edition, Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report remains the foremost authority in terms of assessing the numerous cybersecurity threats organizations continue to face. And while the report has evolved, the fundamentals of security remain the same. ” “You have to evaluate your exposure, mitigate the risk and – underlines Dave Hylender – take the appropriate measures. As often happens, starting from a solid foundation is the most important factor for success”. (by Andreana d’Aquino)
