The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) recently released its cyber incident trends report for the period between October 2018 and April 2019. The report covers five main cyber attack trends seen in the UK – (1) attacks on Office 365 deployments (and cloud services in general), (2) ransomware, (3) phishing, (4) vulnerability scanning, and (5) supply-chain attacks. “All the incident types noted have resulted in compromises within the UK, some significant in nature,” it says.

Cyber Attack Trends 2019

Check Point Research released its 2019 mid-year report on Cyber Attack Trends last month. The report puts targeted ransomware attacks at the top of its list of dominant ongoing trends in 2019. Cryptomining attacks, on the other hand, have declined considerably over the past year, with only 21 percent organizations affected by cryptominers’ attacks this year, compared to 42 percent in 2018.
