Cyberattacks didn’t take a break during the pandemic

Cybercriminals have been busy beavers during the pandemic, according to a new report from cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike. 

The company found that cyberattacks conducted via hands-on keyboard activity made up almost four fifths (79%) of all intrusions in the past year. The time taken for attackers to cause serious damage also fell dramtically from 2019 to 2020, with the average “breakout time” (how long it takes for an attacker to start moving beyond the initial beachhead) was now just four hours and 28 minutes.
