Over 4000 attacks using blackmail software
More and more companies are becoming painfully aware of the value of data. Every eighth company in Europe has been the victim of a cyber incident in recent years. In 2016, there were over 4,000 attacks using blackmail software - an increase of 300 percent over the previous year.
Forced downtime by WannaCry and Petya/NotPetya
In the summer of 2017, companies around the world were the victims of mass attacks with malicious programmes such as WannaCry or Petya / NotPetya. These malware programmes affected computers, paralysed production lines, railway displays and hospitals. Only after the payment of ransom money were operations allowed to continue.
Affected by cyber attacks
According to the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), seven out of ten organisations in Germany were also affected by cyber attacks in recent years. Every second successful attack led to production or operational failures. Many of these attacks remained undetected for a long time.
