We’re only a few months into 2022, but it’s clear that the growing number of cyber attacks and their significant damage to organisations will continue. Cybersecurity spending is increasing, but so are the number of breaches. Here are some statistics to keep in mind as you plan ahead with your staff and security team.

New findings from penetration testing projects by Positive

services, energy, government, and IT, hackers were able to breach an organisation’s network and access resources.
- In 2021, there were 50% more cyber attacks per week than in 2020

- Top threats for SMBs include phishing, compromised devices, and credential compromise
