A growing danger

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.
