The most considerable threat throughout 2021 was undeniably Ransomware; with successful attacks on the US’s oil industry, food supply chain and more; this Malware really proved its potency in 2021.
Victims of Ransomware attacks however did not only include globally recognised corporations with ransoms of tens of millions, there was an unquestionable rise in extortion of victims from all walks of life.
2021 seemed to be the year for Ransomware and its orchestrators to really learn how best to execute the attacks to ensure a ransom is paid. However with every successful attack, multiple failed attempts were defended against. Which should give those with correct and structured cyber security in place a lot of hope in the resilience of their defences.
As last year came to a close, the Cyber Security industry had its tail between its legs somewhat as professionals around the world were scrambling to try and address the Log4Shell vulnerability. In an undeclared race to try and mitigate or patch the flaw.
Whilst the industry tried to remediate Log4j issues and for the most part successfully did. The long term effects of the vulnerability will be continually identified via a trickle effect throughout 2022.
As we all slowly begin to settle into 2022, the Cyber Security industry and its providers need to learn from the surprises of 2021 and prepare defences for 2022.
As we enter 2022 continually looking to improve and diversify our defences, what methods will enable us to ensure our Cyber Security practises are second to none (including the hackers) this year…
Let’s defend 2022 and start the year as we mean to go on.
