The New Year has started, and the cyber criminals are back with a bang. January 2023 has presented us with an exhaustive list of cyber-attacks, ransomware attacks and data breaches which are captured in this blog.
Several high-profile organisations, including healthcare providers, educational institutions and government bodies, have reportedly become targets of cyber-attacks already at the start of the year.
As always, the idea is not to create panic or fear-mongering. It is merely to reiterate the fact that the threat of cyber-attacks and ransomware attacks continues to grow, and it is essential for you to take action to protect your organisation in 2023. By staying informed, implementing strong security measures, and educating employees, organisations across the world can reduce their risk of falling victim to these attacks.
