The total number of DDoS attacks against Russian companies in 2023 increased by 29% compared to 2022. socialbites.ca learned about this from StormWall’s press release.

The most significant increase in attacks was recorded in the telecom sector, transportation sector and public sector. Thus, the number of incidents in the telecom sector increased by 92 percent, in the transportation sector by 38 percent, and in the public sector by 34 percent.

“The increasing number of attacks on the telecom sector was due to the fact that regional telecommunications companies did not have professional protection against multi-vector DDoS attacks. The transportation sector and the public sector were major targets for hacktivists throughout the year, the company said.
