Cyber attacks increase by 65 per cent

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.

Pre­ven­tion there­fore remains the deciding factor involved in pre­venting cyber attacks. Pro­tect your devices and data with our “5 steps for your dig­ital secu­rity”. Handy mea­sure to reduce risks in com­pa­nies can be found in our “Tips for SME”.
