Again this year, French companies were targeted by cyberattacks.
92% of them suffered significant consequences like data theft, loss of money, employee fear, etc. The trend shows that these attacks evolve each year and change to reach businesses in a more targeted approach.
What is the assessment for these last 12 months?
A dark year for the maritime and aeronautical transport sectors, which were especially vulnerable to ransomware attacks. The medical sector was also targeted by theft of patient data and prescriptions.
2019, a year at risk
The expectation is that 2019 will not be a quiet year. Especially for the hospital sector, where the risks of extortion of files, money and medical equipment are more present. More and more business sectors and business typologies are affected by attacks and data leaks. Hackers are no longer limited to Internet giants like Facebook and Google … So a piece of advice: get ready and protect yourself!
Cybersecurity at the heart of business strategy
Despite this trend, companies are becoming aware of the risks and finally putting cybersecurity at the heart of their concerns. Many exhibitions and events are organised for prevention and measures are also put in place by the state.
