The Global Year in Breach 2021 is Here with 2020 Brach Data and What’s Next!

2020 was a tumultuous year for everyone – especially in cybersecurity. A perfect storm of trouble spawned an unprecedented wave of cybercrime around the globe. As the economy contracted, even cybercriminals had to work a little bit harder to make ends meet – and they were quick to get on it with sophisticated cyberattacks against large and small organizations.

Stress = Opportunity for Cybercriminals

But the pandemic itself wasn’t the only event that impacted cybersecurity in 2020. In the face of global lockdowns to slow the disease’s spread, companies were forced to choose between enabling employees to work from home or closing their doors until it blew over – which never happened. That meant that a record number of anxious, concerned new remote workers came online, opening up a plethora of opportunities for bad actors.

Booming dark web data markets and huge quantities of new records for sale on the dark web begat bigger, nastier crimes like spear phishing directed at businesses that powered ransomware, audacious business email compromise scams and password-based attacks. The public’s hunger for information was a boon for cybercriminals too, creating golden opportunities to phish that cybercriminals didn’t waste.
