Trends in phishing attacks on organizations in 2022–2023

Phishing is one of the main tools attackers use to gain unauthorized entry into organizations. In 2023, almost half (43%) of all successful attacks on organizations used social engineering, with 79% of these attacks carried out through email, SMS messages, social networks, and messaging apps. This indicates the effectiveness of phishing attacks, which not only entail reputational risks but can also cause significant financial damage.

This study is dedicated to the analysis of phishing messages worldwide, focusing exclusively on phishing attacks on organizations conducted through email, SMS messages, social networks, and messaging apps.

Cyberthreats to the financial industry: interim results for 2023

Attackers are targeting the least secure companies and compromise supply chains while hacktivists continue to get plenty of media attention. The most common consequences of attacks are data breaches and shutdowns of key services. Leaked databases and methods of accessing organizations' networks remain in high demand on darkweb forums.

Cybersecurity threatscape: Q3 2023

In Q3, the total number of incidents went down only slightly (by 2%) when compared to the previous quarter. Social engineering remained the top threat to individuals (92%). Cybercriminals were eager to improve their malicious methods and use new tools, including neural networks. In attacks on organizations, cybercriminals continued to use malware (in 45% of cases), but the share of encryption malware dropped from Q2 2023, with some ransomware operators now stealing data without encrypting systems. Exploitation of vulnerabilities accounted for a significant share (37%) of successful attacks on organizations. The third quarter also saw multiple cyberattacks that caused serious consequences, such as data breaches (56% of successful attacks on organizations and 61% of attacks against individuals).
