Cyber attackers were targeting many UK businesses in 2021


It was recently reported that UK businesses were victims of 667,597 different cyberattacks throughout 2021.

Indeed, a study by Beaming showed that the rate of attacks on UK businesses online was really high even though it is 3% lower than in 2020. There is an excess of 1,750 attackers per day since the beginning of lockdown in 2020.

UK businesses were reported to still be receiving 165,933 attempts to breach their systems online in the final three months of 2021, as the rate of attack rose steadily between September and December 2021. Most of the IP addresses were traced back to China, as well as some in the USA, India, Brazil, and Russia.
