KROLL CYBER RISK THREAT LANDSCAPE REPORT – Q1 2022

On 18 May, a release on Mondo Visione advised that, despite a fall in ransomware incidents, employees now find themselves on the cyber frontline following a dramatic rise in phishing attacks.  Kroll reported a 54% increase in phishing attacks from the end of last year.  Email compromise and ransomware were the 2 most common threat incident types for the quarter.  Data reflects an ongoing trend, seen by Kroll since mid-2021, of attackers using email compromises as an initial access method for financial extortion, placing employees in the firing line of cyberattacks.
