"Imperva Research Labs' June 2020 Cyber Threat Index (CTI) Report analyzed data from the past six months to reveal the overall impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on web traffic patterns. Since January 2020, traffic to Law & Government sites spiked by 71% as consumers visited gov.org sites for resources and assistance throughout the pandemic. Industries like Food (+60%), Entertainment (+43%) and Retail (+20%) also saw similar increases. The CTI uncovered that Healthcare sites are highly susceptible to remote attacks, with remote code execution and data leakage as the most dominant attacks. The Cyber Threat Index was created by Imperva Research Labs. To view more monthly insights and recommendations, visit the Cyber Threat Index homepage. https://www.imperva.com/cyber-threat-index/
Through 2020, all Impervians will receive an additional paid volunteer time off (VTO) day to further support charities and organizations of their choice amid COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement. At Imperva, we believe in serving our communities in which we work and live in. ImpervaServes began in 2019 and allows employees two paid VTO days to use as they see fit. The additional day to ImpervaServes now offers three paid VTO days to all employees. So far, employees have participated in volunteer activities like: teaching French at a local primary school, donating blood to the Red Cross, writing Christmas cards for the elderly and more.
The May 2020 Cyber Threat Index revealed seven major application DDoS attacks - two of which lasted 5-6 days. This is unusual since most (70% in May) of these attacks typically last less than 24 hours. Additionally, the team found that 47% of account takeover (ATO) attacks were aimed at loyalty programs and streaming services. Finally, Imperva Research Labs listed cloud platforms and automated tools as the main source of attacks against government sites in the United States. According to our report, a total of 65% of the attacks against Law and Government sites in the US originated from cloud platforms using automated tools written in the Python programming language.
