Cyber-Security at its lowest level ever

Germany the Epi-Centre of the Issue

as you have certainly seen in the current reporting, the new Bitkom study on cyber security shows an even more dramatic picture than in 2019 – the total damage in companies rises to 223 billion euros per year and has therefore more than doubled since 2019.

For example, the number of companies affected by cyber attacks has increased by 23% to 86% of all companies.

Many German and international companies and even governmental institutions and courts are not sufficiently protected, and score only 0 or 2 out of 5 according to the globally established DMARC security standard

in accordance with the test carried out by us.

Also in the wide area of consultants, that should be highly alert as they handle packages of the most sensitive datasets of their clients who trust them that their data is safe, these vulnerability still exists

Looking at the international top-end priorities how to limit – as total avoidance will never be possible – cyber-crime, the GARTNER Security Summit did put DMARC on top-priority No.6 of 10 to secure companies.

Email-based techniques have increased disproportionately in these attacks by 28% to a total of 69% of all attacks.

With the COVID-related increase in HOME-OFFICE work, among other things, this gateway continues to gain in importance. On the one hand, this can be seen in the dramatically growing professionalization of attacks in the sense of organized crime (+ 38%) and the „enablers“ of attacks on the part of employees of a company as an entry point of 42% of all attacks.

Germany is the epi-centre of this development with 43% share of the origin of the attacks, followed by Eastern Europe with 37%.

As a result, the relevant demand-papers for the 2021 Bundestag election also prioritize the effective protection of critical infrastructures, and here the email structure is at the forefront.

Crowdstrike pinpoints exactly into the same direction in their 2021 Global Thread Report
