Cybersecurity is the practice of safeguarding critical systems and sensitive data against digital attacks. Cybersecurity measures, also known as information technology (IT) security, are intended to combat threats to networked systems and applications, whether they originate within or outside of an organization. These cyberattacks are typically intended to gain access to, change, or destroy sensitive information; extort money from users; or disrupt normal business processes.

Due to the proliferation of mobile devices and remote workers, endpoints such as desktops, laptops, smartphones, tablets, and so on have become vulnerable targets for cyber attackers due to the proliferation of mobile devices and remote workers. Pinsout’s EPaaS monitors events generated at your endpoints to detect and mitigate suspicious activity.
Computers, tablets, devices, and phones that handle all of the demands from databases, email clients, applications, and more can cause problems and vulnerabilities. It is critical to have confidence that your company’s IT infrastructure is secure and monitored around the clock.
Considers this: patching reduces your company’s vulnerability to vulnerabilities, which reduces risk. Patching can make all the difference in the world. Patch Management as a Service from Pinsout can handle the critical, complex, and cyclical patching process for you, allowing you to concentrate on other aspects of your business.
Server access attacks accounted for approximately 28% of all attacks on finance and insurance in 2020, with ransomware accounting for 10% of all attacks. Since 2016, the finance and insurance industries have been the most targeted, a position they will hold in 2020. In 2020, financial institutions experienced 23% of all attacks analyzed by IBM X-Force, up from 17% in 2019.
Manufacturing was the victim of 21% of ransomware attacks. Manufacturing companies were targeted four times as frequently as any other industry. Manufacturing was the second most attacked industry in 2020, up from eighth in 2019, and received 17.7 percent of all attacks on the top ten industries, more than doubling the previous year's figure of 8.1 percent. Threat actors' renewed focus on manufacturing highlights the industry's resurgence as a target, particularly for ransomware, BEC, and remote access trojan attacks (the industry also ranked second in 2015 and third in 2017).
Data theft and leaks accounted for approximately 35% of all attacks on the energy industry. The energy industry was the third most attacked industry in 2020, accounting for 11.1 percent of attacks on the top ten industries, up from ninth the previous year. Server access attacks on the energy sector wreaked havoc on organizations in 2020, ranking fourth after health care in terms of the number of such attacks.
Furthermore, 36 percent of retail attacks involved credential theft, while 18 percent involved ransomware. The retail industry ranked fourth in 2020, down from second last year, and received 10.2 percent of all attacks on the top ten industries, down from 16 percent the previous year. Retail has long been a favorite target of malicious threat actors as a hub for credit card payments and other financial transactions.
More than one-third (33%) of government attacks were ransomware, the second-highest percentage among all industries; 25% of government attacks were attempted data theft and leaks. In the 2020 ranking, the public sector — which includes defense, public administration, and government-provided services — ranked sixth, receiving 7.9 percent of all attacks on the top-10 industries. This places the government sector in the same position as in 2019 when it received 8% of attacks on the top ten industries.
Health care ranked seventh on the most-attacked industries chart in 2020, absorbing 6.6 percent of all attacks on our top-10 list — an increase from 10th place and 3 percent of attacks in 2019. This is a significant increase that reflects the onslaught that health care faced as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, ranging from ransomware attacks to threat actors targeting COVID-related research and treatments. These types of threats will continue to affect health care and health research organizations in 2021, necessitating increased vigilance as attackers continue to target the sector.
