Truesec's annual Threat Intelligence Report for 2022 shows a sharp increase in the number of cyber attacks against organizations in Scandinavia and worldwide. Cybercriminals are acting faster and using constantly evolving tactics to achieve their goals. The speed of the attacks, from the initial foothold to when the attackers reach their goal, has increased. In less than 24 hours after the initial breach, threat actors can obtain full administrative privileges, which means complete control over the victim's network and IT infrastructure.
"There are important immediate steps an organization can take to reduce the risk of cyber breach and minimize its impact. Therefore, in our report, we offer advice and recommendations that organizations can immediately act on to address cybersecurity challenges," says Mattias Wåhlén, Threat Intelligence Lead at Truesec.
Truesec's annual Threat Intelligence Report is based on proprietary sources and experience from actual incidents and prevented cyber breaches combined with information from external sources, including partners and law enforcement agencies. All handled cyber threats and data breaches in 2021 have been analyzed to determine the root causes, what could have prevented the intrusions, and what could have minimized the effects.
