Nation-state cyberattacks see huge rise in 2020

The world is edging closer to the brink of a fully-fledged, all-out global cyberwar, a new report from HP has warned. 

The company found that there had been a 100% rise in ‘significant’ nation-state incidents between 2017-2020. In almost half (40%) of the incidents analyzed, the damage was done in both cyber, and physical plains, something the paper describes as “hybridization”. For example, a cyberattack against an energy plant also has consequences in the physical world.
