The battle against cyber threats is set to intensify as we move into 2022.

Just this year alone, Akamai’s threat research team analysed over 300TB of new attack data daily and saw record-breaking highs in distributed denial of service (DDoS), credential abuse, and application-layer attacks.

We can expect those figures to increase if organisations and end-users alike do not take cybersecurity seriously as our world becomes more connected. “The bad actor of 2022 does not look like a bad actor anymore – the line between what is real and what is fake will become impossible to decipher. With people no longer able to differentiate and data co-mingled on devices, everyone – especially consumers – will be attack vectors,” says Steven Gan, country manager for Southeast Asia at Qualys.
