And the industry sector most vulnerable to cyber attacks goes to… (drum-roll, please!)… Finance

After a short hiatus, finance has returned as the most attacked industry sector in the EMEA, mainly thanks to web application attacks, says research

According to the NTT Security‘s 2019 Global Threat Intelligence Report, the finance industry in EMEA accounted for 30% of all attacks – compared to 17% globally, reinforcing its vulnerability to cybercrime.

As such, finance has knocked business and professional services off the top spot, which was last year’s most attacked sector at 20%.
