Top 5 Most Targeted Industries For Cyber Attacks

According to IBM’s 2014 Cyber Security Intelligence Index, over 75 percent of the cyber attacks the company monitored in 2013 targeted the following five industries:

1. Finance and insurance (23.8 percent)
2. Manufacturing (21.7 percent)
3. Information and communication (18.6 percent)
4. Retail and wholesale (6.2 percent)
5. Health and social services (5.8 percent)

Every day, more than 1 million people become victims of cyber crime. Cyber criminals look for the weak spots and then attack, no matter how large or small the organization. Cyber attacks can result directly from deliberate actions of hackers, or attacks can be unintentionally facilitated by employees—for example, if they click on a malicious link.
