SoSafe Cyber Security Awareness, provider of an interactive training platform for cyber security and one of the market leaders in awareness building in the DACH countries (Germany, Austria, Switzerland), has published its “Human Risk Review 2021”. The results of the annual report show: During the COVID-19 pandemic, employees have been in the focus of cyberattacks and therefore play a significant role in protecting organizations from these threats. In addition to a general look at the cyberthreat landscape, the report particularly highlights the human factor and the technical and psychological tactics cybercriminals use to provoke clicks on phishing mails. For the first time, the report powerfully shows that the likelihood of cyberattacks succeeding has increased during the pandemic and in times of remote working. The data is based on more than 1.4 million data points from the SoSafe Awareness Platform, malware analyses by AV-TEST, an awareness study with more than 5,000 participants, and a survey of more than 100 cyber security experts.
