Cybercrime continues its activity with undiminished intensity, and cyberattacks are increasing worldwide. Cyber-attacks have been established as a state-level weapon, including the new “Country Extortion” ransomware method and hacktivism, linked to government issues.
The war in Ukraine also plays an important role in increasing the extent and intensity of cyberattacks. Many countries friendly to Ukraine have been under cyber-attacks recently.
Ransomware is now a multidimensional ecosystem, while at the same time cybercriminal groups have become more structured and operate with a specific framework and plan, hitting specific targets.
