The number of online attacks in Switzerland has seen a dramatic rise in 2021 once more, and this trend is likely to continue in 2022. More than ever, there is one thing users need to do: Protect their digital security!
Compared to the previous year, researchers working for the Check Point security provider have found a 65 per cent increase in cyber attacks. A similar picture emerged for the rest of Europe. Compared to 2020, attacks increased by 50 per cent.
Swiss companies were a particularly frequent target of criminals over the last year, in particular in healthcare and the financial sector. Communities and other public institutions were also attacked to a similar degree. But private individuals are increasingly falling victim to attacks as well.
