The following list shows known cyberattacks in the 1st half of 2022. The entries are sorted by month and each refers to sources where further details can be found.
For each month, a small statistic is given by country and industry. It should be noted that these evaluations are not representative because they only include cases that have become known and the number of unreported cases is very high. For this reason, institutions from the public sector and healthcare are disproportionately represented, as cyberattacks are usually communicated directly here and are also difficult to hide due to the high level of public traffic.
Information on current cyber attacks and on the second half of the year can be found here:
