The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has reported that they received more than 34.000 reports of cyber security events. That’s a significant increase when compared to the previous year.
In 2022, the total number of reports received by the NCSC increased considerably. And although with a total of more than 34.000 reports compared to 21.000 the previous year, the number didn’t actually double, the increase by 13.000 reports is still higher in absolute figures compared to the previous year. On the one hand, this can be attributed to the rising awareness of the NCSC and its report form. Still, this renewed increase is also due to other causes, such as faked e-mail threats purportedly sent by the authorities (“fake extortion”), calls using forged telephone numbers (“spoofing”), ransomware or investment fraud.
