A company that wants to keep your information secure should always consider the possibility that a cyber attack could be coming at any time.
That’s the conclusion of a new report that highlights how the FBI is tracking the number of attacks and breaches on corporate networks worldwide.
The report, “The Cyber Threat in Corporate Networks: The Impact of the Internet of Things (IoT),” by cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab, was released Wednesday, just days before the US Senate is scheduled to vote on a cyber security bill.
Kaspersky Labs has been tracking the IoT attacks on its network in an effort to protect its customers.
In 2017, the company said, it was the fourth most popular IoT threat to its networks, and in 2020, the top five were malicious software, ransomware, ransomware and botnets.
But the report also highlighted how vulnerable corporations are to IoT attacks and how many of them are in countries with weak or no laws protecting companies from these attacks.
Kudos to @KasperskiLab for highlighting this important threat to corporate IT. https://t.co/6rvJ2pqY9v — Federal Trade Commission (@FTC) September 13, 2021In the report, Kasperski Labs said the IoT threat is not just an issue in the United States, where attacks on corporate IT are a common occurrence.
In a number of countries around the world, the threat is growing.
The report found that attacks on IoT networks in the EU and Canada rose from 1,638 attacks in 2017 to 6,094 attacks in 2020.
The figure is expected to reach 8,823 attacks by 2025.
The FBI said the number is rising faster in the U.S. than in Europe and is now about 3,600 attacks per year.
In 2020, Kieslowski said, the number was about 1,500 attacks per month.
But attacks are still not limited to the United Kingdom, which has seen a significant increase in IoT attacks in recent years, according to the report.
In the U: Kasperskaps latest report, the FBI said attacks on enterprises in the UK doubled in 2017 and the number in 2020 increased from 2,400 attacks in 2016 to 4,746 attacks in 2025.
In both countries, attacks on companies are increasing as companies move from enterprise-level IT to IoT.
In both countries the number increased from 0 in 2016, to 2,923 attacks in 2021, according the FBI.
In Europe, attacks increased from 1 in 2016 at 1,300 attacks per day in 2020 to 633 attacks in 2030, the report said.
The number of IoT attacks increased by about 10% between 2016 and 2020, according Kasperska, which said it found that in the five years after the U.-Korea agreement, there were 2,788 attacks.
In 2021, there are 2,812 attacks.
In China, the increase was much more pronounced.
Attacks rose from 6,082 attacks per week in 2016 in 2020 and grew to nearly 8,400 in 2021.
The UK, the most targeted nation in the world in 2020 by the FBI, saw an increase of 10% to 6.7% in attacks in the next five years, Kolsky said.
The UK also had the most attacks in both 2020 and 2021.
In Canada, attacks in Canada in 2020 spiked from 1.1 attacks per million people in 2016 and rose to 3.3 attacks per thousand in 2021 and remained at that level for two more years, said Kolski.
The most attacks were in the Middle East, which was the most affected region in the report for 2020, with attacks in Egypt, Syria, the UAE, Bahrain and Iraq rising by nearly 5,000 per month and 5,400 per month respectively.
In Australia, attacks rose by more than 50% in the three years from 2016 to 2020, said the report and then dropped to a little over 1 attack per million for the next two years.
The attacks were down to about 100 attacks per 100,000 in 2021 from about 300 in 2020 in Australia.
In Germany, attacks were on average just 0.6 per million in 2020 while attacks were still up by 25% over the same period.
Attacks dropped to just 0 per million a year in 2021 but they were still about twice as high in 2020 as in 2021 in Germany.
In South Africa, attacks dropped in the past year to 0.4 attacks per 1 million people, down from 1 attack in the previous year.
Attacks are still at about 1 per million, or more than a third, a year after the last report.
Kelski also found that the IoT attack rate has increased in some countries, including Germany, the United Arab Emirates, Italy and the United Republic of Tanzania.
Kolsky also noted that attacks are increasing in the Philippines and Japan, where the FBI says attacks are on average about 1.5 per million per year, compared to about 0.5 attacks in Japan. The
