Cyber Attack & Data Breach List - June 2022
Three UK cyber attacks and data breaches
June was a surprisingly quiet month for UK cyber attacks and data breaches, with only three reported. It would be good if this were part of a trend in decline, but I suspect this is not the case. Let’s see what happens next month.
All three attacks appear to have had a direct impact on operations, and have prevented the victim companies from making deliveries or taking phone calls from customers. As such whilst only one has been reported as ransomware, it is likely that a similar tactic has been deployed on all three.
In June the three UK data breaches and cyber attacks were in the following sectors:
- Transportation and Logistics
- Food, drink and accommodation
- Real Estate
