The definitive UK cyber attacks and data breaches list

So, a quiet month this month then? Absolutely not! There were eight data breaches and cyber attacks in September, with schools particularly badly hit.

It really has been relentless for the education sector this year, with budgets hit and ransomware gangs sniffing an easy target. One can only feel sorry for school Heads and IT system administrators struggling to cope with the bombardment.

Besides these a few other attacks stand out from the crowd.

Save the Children suffered a ransomware attack, giving another example of just how low cyber criminals are willing to stoop for profit.

KNP Logistics blamed their recent bankruptcy on a ransomware attack, which is a sobering thought for those preparing their 2024 budgets.

And Edinburgh Trams website was taken down by pro Russian hacktivists, another illustration of geo-political influence on the current threat landscape.
