Ransomware remains a major threat to the growth and security of key economic sectors.
Cyber attackers have improved their arsenal this year by focusing on fewer attacks against large-scale organizations, and ransomware operators have seen a 25% increase in targeted ransomware attacks in Turkey.
To launch such high-level attacks, cybercriminals first need to reach their target. First, they use various methods to infiltrate companies. In order to carry out complex attacks, exploiting a vulnerability is a common first attack method used to gain access. Globally, more than 53% of leaks were made by exploiting publicly available apps. This was followed by the use of compromised accounts (18%) and malicious email (14%).
Most of the cyberattacks investigated by security teams were already underway. This is particularly worrying because the more cybercriminals lurk on the network, the more damage they can cause. To avoid such situations, organizations should rely on intelligence-driven detection solutions that can detect anomalies within a network. This will assist in early detection and intervention and in reducing costs and losses.
