2022 State of the Threat: A Year in Review

Published by: Secureworks

In 2022, ransomware remained the most prevalent form of attack. In investigations by Secureworks® incident responders, the median time between initial access and ransomware detonation dropped to 4.5 days in 2022, compared to 5 days in 2021. Meanwhile, nation-state dynamics like those observed in conflicts between Russia and Ukraine shifted rapidly.
Secureworks Counter Threat Unit™ (CTU) researchers have noted a general trend: the size of organizations falling victim to these threats is growing smaller over time. Smaller organizations are likely to be less well-resourced, making them a softer target and one that is less likely to bring in specialist incident response services after the event.
