About this talk

It was another record-breaking year for cyberattacks. Globally, there were 193 billion credential stuffing attacks. We also saw 6.3 billion web attacks, with SQL Injection and Local File Inclusion being the most common attacks. Along with an overall increase in incidents, 2020 saw new daily peaks, with global credential abuse reaching 1,003,963,614 attacks in a single day. And we witnessed the rise of phishing kits, which introduced a whole new approach for hackers to take. In our latest report, we team up with WMC Global to bring you a complete, in-depth look at the current state of cyberthreats and highlight a highly targeted vertical for attacks: FinServ businesses.
