Cyber-espionage is the top threat facing businesses, ahead of targeted attacks and phishing attempts, according to new research.
Trend Micro’s research covered nearly 2500 organizations across Europe and the UK and found that 64% of businesses had experienced a ‘known’ major cyber-attack in the past 12 months. On average, businesses were hit by four cyber-attacks during that time.
Ransomware proved to be the most common type of incident, with 78% of respondents reporting an attack. Phishing (31%), business email compromise (17%) and cyber-espionage (15%) were other common attacks.
