As always, let’s start from the Daily Trend of Attacks chart, which shows a clear increase in the number of events in the second half of the month.
Cyber Crime ranks steadily on top of the Motivations Behind Attacks, increasingly its percentage to 80.8% from 76.5% in March. Cyber Espionage slides to 11.1% from 19.4%. For the first time in 2018, hacktivism takes over cyber warfare. The events mostly in Italy lead its percentage to 5.1 from 1%. Cyber warfare closes the chart with 3% confirming the same value of April.
