BARNEVELD, Nederlands--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nieuw onderzoek laat zien dat het aantal cyberaanvallen op de overheid in 2016 is verdubbeld tot 14% van alle cybersecurityaanvallen, tegenover 7% in 2015. Het aantal aanvallen op de financiële sector is ook drastisch gestegen, van slechts 3% van alle aanvallen in 2015 tot 14% in 2016. De productiesector is op de derde plaats terechtgekomen met 13%, terwijl de detailhandel, in 2015 nog bovenaan op de lijst van sectoren met de meeste cybersecurityaanvallen, naar de vierde plaats is gezakt (11%). Dit blijkt uit de Executive’s Guide van Dimension Data voor het Global Threat Intelligence Report 2017 van NTT Security. Dit rapport is samengesteld op basis van gegevens verzameld door NTT Security en andere NTT-werkmaatschappijen, waaronder Dimension Data, uit netwerken van 10.000 klanten verspreid over vijf continenten, 3,5 biljoen security logs, 6,2 miljard aanvalspogingen en wereldwijde ¹honeypots en ²sandboxes in meer dan honderd verschillende landen. Matthew Gyde, Group Executive - Security van Dimension Data: “Overheden over de hele wereld hebben voortdurend te maken met de dreiging van geavanceerde aanvallen geïnitieerd door rivaliserende naties, terroristische groepen, hacktivisten en cybercriminelen. Dit komt doordat overheidsinstanties beschikken over enorme hoeveelheden gevoelige informatie: van persoonsinformatie, budgettaire gegevens en gevoelige correspondentie tot bevindingen van inlichtingendiensten. Wat interessant is, is dat we dit jaar tal van incidenten hebben gezien waarbij het ging om bedreigingen van binnenuit.” ¹ Honeypots: systemen die zijn gebouwd als lokmiddelen, speciaal opgezet om aanvallers aan te trekken en informatie te verzamelen over digitale aanvallen die zijn gericht tegen de honeypots. ² Sandbox: een testomgeving waarin ongeteste codewijzigingen en experimenten zijn geïsoleerd van de productieomgeving of het productiearchief, in het kader van softwareontwikkeling, zoals webontwikkeling en revisiebeheer.

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New research reveals that cyberattacks on the government sector doubled in 2016, hiking to 14% from 7% of all cyber security attacks in 2015. Attacks on the finance sector also rose dramatically from just 3% in 2015 to 14% of all attacks in 2016. The manufacturing sector came in at third place at 13%, while the retail sector, which topped the list of all cybersecurity attacks on all sectors in 2015 moved down into fourth place (11%). This is according to Dimension Data’s Executive’s Guide to the NTT Security 2017 Global Threat Intelligence Report, which was compiled from data collected by NTT Security and other NTT operating companies including Dimension Data, from the networks of 10,000 clients across five continents, 3.5 trillion security logs, 6.2 billion attempted attacks, and global ¹honeypots and ² sandboxes located in over 100 different countries. The report pinpoints a number of global geo-political events which could have contributed to the government sector being a cybersecurity attack target. These include: Matthew Gyde, Dimension Data’s Group Executive – Security said, “Governments all over the world are constantly under the threat of sophisticated attacks launched by rival nation-states, terrorist groups, hacktivists, and cyber criminals. That’s because government agencies hold vast amounts of sensitive information – from personnel records, budgetary data, and sensitive communications, to intelligence findings. What’s interesting is that this year we saw numerous incidents involving insider threats Commenting on the financial services industry, Gyde said the ongoing attacks in the financial services industry is no surprise. “These organisations have large amounts of digital assets and sensitive customer data. Gaining access to them enables cybercriminals to monetise personally identifiable information and credit card data in the underground economy.” Other highlights in the report are: Click here to download Dimension Data’s Executive’s Guide to the 2017 Global Threat Intelligence Report. ¹Honeypots: systems built as lures, specifically built to attract attackers, and gather information from cyberattacks directed against the honeypots. ² Sandbox: a testing environment that isolates untested code changes and outright experimentation from the production environment or repository, in the context of software development including Web development and revision control.
