2021 Q2 threat report

As anticipated, Q2 2021 has continued to see cyber-attacks dominating headlines with several high-profile ransomware attacks making significant impacts against industries around the globe, including an attack against Ireland’s healthcare industry. This not only highlights the capability of cyber-criminals, but also the lack of morals with which many threat actors operate, showing that no industry is out of scope when it comes to making money.

Telesoft’s Q2 threat report describes how some of the operations which have been seen in the headlines over the past few months, whilst also offering recommendations and links to useful toolsets to help better protect your organisation.

Executive Summary

Having already reached the end of Q2, 2021 feels like it is moving at a rapid pace. As anticipated, cyber-attacks have continued to dominate headlines with several high-profile ransomware attacks making significant impacts against industries around the globe, including an attack against the healthcare industry, impacting the lives of many. This also highlights the lack of morals cyber-criminals operate with, showing that no industry is out of scope when it comes to making money.

We have continued to see an increasing trend in spear-phishing attacks as well as business email compromise (BEC), utilised by threat actors to increase their chances of success when attempting to gain initial access to their target network. Additionally, the effort these groups put into their emails and website designs also appear to be increasing, making the malicious emails and fake websites much more difficult to distinguish from their legitimate counterparts, and therefore requiring much more diligence and a better understanding when it comes to individual knowledge of such techniques.
