Cyberattacks and the threat landscape were analyzed in a recent report by NTT Security Holdings. From the disruption of fuel distribution to the interruption of emergency healthcare services, cyberattacks are no longer confined to cyberspace.

Report findings include:

  • The integration of technology into infrastructure and supply chains made sectors like technology, manufacturing and transport/distribution particularly vulnerable.
  • Attacks targeting cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) platforms continued to increase. Web-based and desktop application threats accounted for a staggering 70% of attacks.
  • WordPress emerged as the most attacked content management system (CMS) software in the Americas, Asia Pacific (APAC) and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
  • Attackers focused on high-impact vulnerabilities, with nearly 75% of them having critical- or high-severity CVSSv3 scores.
