Proofpoint’s 2022 State of the Phish Report Reveals Email-Based Attacks Dominated the Threat Landscape in 2021

Proofpoint, Inc., a leading cybersecurity and compliance company, today released its eighth annual State of the Phish report, which provides an in-depth look at user phishing awareness, vulnerability, and resilience. The report reveals that attackers were more active in 2021 than 2020, with findings uncovering that more than three-quarters (78%) of global organisations saw email-based ransomware attacks in 2021, while 77% faced business email compromise attacks (BEC) (18% YoY increase of BEC attacks from 2020), reflecting cybercriminals’ continued focus on compromising people, as opposed to gaining access to systems through technical vulnerabilities.
