The Top 5 Causes of Cybersecurity Incidents

Phishing, spear phishing, and social engineering are at the top of the chart as the most disruptive attack vectors, followed by malware and ransomware, according to the 2018 BCI Cyber Resilience Report.

The report warns that these attack vectors are often operated in connection to one another. For instance, malware is typically delivered through social engineering, phishing techniques, or systems lacking updates. A prime example was the 2017 WannaCry ransomware attack.

The full 2018 BCI Cyber Resilience Report detailing the cyber resilience spectrum, including future threats and trends is available for download via the BCI.
