The professionalization of cybercrime - The top 5 attack trends in 2022

CEO of SoSafe, Dr. Niklas Hellemann, gives an insight into the top 5 cybercrime trends in 2022 and explains which psychological factors play a particularly important role in cyberattacks.

More

Global crises, geopolitical challenges, the COVID 19 pandemic – last year did not give us time to take a breath. And unfortunately, we also had to observe dramatic developments in the field of information security.

Because cyber criminals were not long in coming up with attacks when it came to exploiting the dynamic social context for their unscrupulous intentions. In addition, there is an increasing professionalization in the field of cybercrime. Organizations now face an innovative dark economy where cybercrime-as-a-service is the common business model. Tactics are evolving almost by the minute and attackers do not hesitate to use psychological tactics to manipulate our minds. The interface between humans and machines remains the number one entry point – more than 85 percent of all attacks start with the human factor. CEO of SoSafe, Dr. Niklas Hellemann, gives an insight into the top 5 cybercrime trends in 2022 and explains which psychological factors play a particularly important role in cyberattacks.

Cyber: What geopolitics and handwashing have to do with it

The end of the globalized world as we know it comes with increasing fragmentation, US-China tensions, the Russia-Ukraine war, and the weaponization of technologies.

More

These are some of the major geopolitical megatrends – and all manifest themselves, and increasingly so, in the cyber space. The number of cyber attacks – both with criminal or (geo-)political intent – is increasing continuously. With not only operational or financial impact but also with real impact on real people like a patient dying because a hospital was hacked and could not take her. 

In our digitalized world cyber is and remains the dark sibling. It is a top priority for all companies and institutions – or should be. The good news is: You can prepare and protect yourself, both as a country and as a company. But it all starts – as with every key business topic, as with every discontinuity risk – with awareness and acceptance. And after that, it’s implementation that counts, day after day: protecting against cyber attacks is like handwashing to protect against viruses: you have to do it over and over again.

Outside the box - Cybersecurity awareness in the context of society

Digital technologies have long since become the linchpin of our lives. We trust relatively blindly in devices we do not understand, networks we do not see through, ecosystems whose complexity defies our imagination.

More

This requires a trustworthy technical basis, but also a social structure that is able to keep pace with the rapid development and even more, to give it a direction.

Cyber security strategies in 2023

Cybersecurity practices are constantly evolving, just like the threats they combat.

More

Together with IT experts we take a closer look: What priority do companies place on cyber security – and on which issues should they focus more? What measures do we need to take now to protect ourselves – and how do we decide how best to invest our “next euro”? Because as the saying goes: “one good practice a day keeps the ransomware away”.

Making Evil: The psychology of cybercrime

Dr Julia Shaw explores the darker side of tech. She discusses the ways in which criminology and psychology help us understand cybercrime, how business structures hide our humanity, and how vigilante scambaiters are revealing tricks we can harness to prevent phishing attacks.

More

We go deep into the science of ethical blindness, social engineering, and how each one of us can fight back.

In this lively and thought-provoking talk, Dr. Shaw encourages us to think deeper about our morality, and how we can overcome some of the greatest online threats to ourselves and our businesses.

„What your home, a cow barn, a bank, and a hospital have in common”

Never before in the history of mankind so many people have been dependent on the smooth functioning of highly developed, precicely coordinated and mutually interdependent structures, technologies and – still foremost – people.

More

How much so, becomes obvious once those systems vanish, break down, no longer work. Based on scenarios of his best-selling novel “Blackout”, and the research for it, Marc Elsberg discusses the importance of understanding those systems and the role of humans in them.
