📊 Global cyberattacks increased by 38% per week in 2022, says report
In new data released by Check Point Research (CPR) on last year’s cyberattack trends, global cyberattacks increased by 38% per week on corporate networks in 2022, compared to 2021. The global volume of cyberattacks also reached an all-time high in Q4 2022, with an average of 1168 weekly attacks

Key drivers behind this growth are the rise in cyber-attacks, digital transformation initiatives, and continued hybrid workforce trends. With the growing number of highly sophisticated and targeted cyberattacks in the region and 38% more cyberattacks per week on corporate networks globally in 2022, businesses in the region are increasing investments in tools and solutions to achieve cyber resiliency against cyber threats.
