Expert: Number of social engineering cyberattacks to rise 30% in 2021

MOSCOW, Apr 7 (PRIME) -- The number of cyberattacks engaging social engineering will rise 20Ц30% in 2021, and the volume of incidents with personal data leaks will also increase, Alexei Pavlov, deputy head of monitoring center Solar JSOC of Russian state-controlled telecom operator Rostelecom, told PRIME on Wednesday.

УMost likely, the rise in attacks with the use of social engineering Ц by about 20Ц30% Ц will continue. The trend of an increasing number of incidents with leaks of personal data from different databases will remain unchanged,Ф Pavlov said.

Attacks on remote access infrastructure will stay in force and evolve since many companies keep their staff at home amid the pandemic, he said.

In 2020, the monitoring center uncovered and fought off more than 1.9 million attacks on information resources of companies, and Moscow accounted for 40% of all incidents.
