Cloud Continues to be a Prime Target for Cyberattacks, Thales Study Reveals
According to a recent study conducted by Thales, one of the leading security companies, the frequency of cyberattacks on the cloud is on the rise. The study, which surveyed nearly 3,000 IT and security professionals across 18 countries, highlights the alarming reality of cloud breaches, with almost two in five businesses experiencing a data breach in their cloud environments last year. The findings also emphasize the significant role of human error in these attacks, accounting for over half of the reported incidents.
Thales’ study sheds light on the increasing trend of cyberattacks targeting cloud environments, with 39% of businesses reporting data breaches in their cloud systems. Among the contributing factors, human error emerged as the leading cause, responsible for 55% of the reported attacks.
