CYBERSECURITY TRENDS: Check Point publishes its Mid-year Cyber risk report
Posted By: Iain Fraser - Cybersecurity Journalist | Gibraltar

Cybersecurity firm Check Point in their mid-Year Cybersecurity Report have revealed that Cyber Attacks have increased by 42% globally with Ransomware being the most prevalent.

Cyber Attack Trends: 2022 Mid-Year Report examines exactly how cyber attacks have intensified and Cyber attacks have been universally elevated to a "state-level" weapon with hacktivism flourishing in the first half of this year with key predictions around attacks in the Metaverse and Supply Chain.

Check Point´s 2022 Cyber Attacks Mid-Year Report explores how cyber warfare has intensified to become an essential part of the "preparation for, and conduct of, actual military conflict with fallouts for governments and enterprises all over the world, even those that are not directly involved in the conflict." 

It also reveals a crossover with cyber warfare and state-affiliated hacktivism to disrupt everyday lives of citizens and cause real harm to citizens, best illustrated by the attack on the entire country of Costa Rica, which crippled essential services including healthcare and inland revenue, stopping medical appointments and the collection of taxes in this new method of ‘Country Extortion’, making ransomware the number one threat in the second half.
