No Holidays For Cyber-Attacks Says Darktrace

While businesses and employees take time off to enjoy holidays and warm weather over the summer, they may not realize the increased risk to cyber-attacks they are leaving behind when they mentally and physically log off from the workplace. 

Darktrace, the world’s leading cyber AI company, regularly observes an increase in attacks during holidays and on weekends. In fact, in 76 per cent of ransomware infections, the encryption process begins after hours or during the weekend, when threat actors often rely on the slower detection and response during out-of-hours times.  

Time is everything when it comes to cyber-attacks, and with increasing numbers of machine-speed attacks it is clear now more than ever that AI-based detection and response is critical so that even when the office is closed or the laptop is switched off, your security remains on.  

With autonomous response, security never takes a holiday, staying active around the clock to protect businesses from threats by stopping cyber-attacks in the early stages, giving security teams time to react and remediate the cause of any incidents.

If you are a business who wants to better protect their networks ahead of summer holidays. I would recommend reaching out to Darktrace today.
