A new report by criminologists at the University of Surrey and cybersecurity researchers at HP has found that nation-state attacks have risen considerably in the last three years. The report also revealed that both enterprises and businesses are amongst the most targetted organisations by nation-state attackers.
The research analyses nation-state attacks taking place between 2017 and 2020. The report discovered that around a third of organisations targeted by the attacks were businesses. The industries that were found to be those most commonly targetted were media, cyber defence, critical infrastructure and government, with enterprise being the most common.
