Some key findings from the ASR 2019:

  • In 2019 threat actors raised the pressure on mid-sized organisations: Attacks on businesses of 1,000 – 10,000 employees increased by 80% in 2019 compared to the previous year. In organisations of less than 1,000 employees the per-head risc of being affected was 12 times higher than in larger ones.
  • Malware was not the predominant incident type in 2019. This can be tracked to the extensive implementation of next-generation endpoint protection.
  • One in three websites uses a certificate issued by an organisation that does not exist any more. This raises severe concerns about the worldwide PKI system used in HTTPS encrypted data transfer.
  • more than 4 billion personal records and data sets have been leaked in 2019. This means statistically one in two persons have had personal data unlawfully disclosed.
  • A full medical record including name, adress, prescriptions, treatment information, employer adress, emergency contacts & will may be on sale for as little as $12 on the darknet.
