Government agencies, municipalities, and social services agencies are not exempt from the scrutiny of hackers. In fact, two US federal civilian agencies were hacked last year by posing as tech support, convincing unaware employees to call them and to visit malicious websites. With increasing connectivity and the expanding use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) work environments, the attack surface available to cybercriminals has greatly expanded.

Many cyberattacks have been perpetrated by organized crime syndicates and “gangs” of malicious actors known as ransomware gangs. From 2020 to 2021, one quarter of all data breaches were due to ransomware. And ransomware technology was used in almost three quarters of all malware infections.

War in Ukraine is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to burgeoning geopolitical unrest. Malignant actors have taken advantage of widespread global disruption and other crises to increase acts of hacktivism and cyberwarfare.

Putting that into perspective — a full 43% of data breaches were directed at the SMB community — almost half of all cyberattacks and the primary target for cybercriminals.
