Quarterly report: Individuals and organisations reported 364 cyber security incidents | CERT NZ

This is the first report released by CERT NZ, reports will be made quarterly and released a month after the period ends.

In this first report we analysed a range of trends in local cyber security data since we launched in April 2017.

Individuals and organisations reported 364 cyber security incidents to CERT NZ. Many of these incidents were phishing attacks – 96 incidents or 34% of the total.

Several New Zealanders have suffered financial losses due to cyber security incidents. These total more than $700,000 in the last three months alone, according to the reports we have received.

We received a spike of ransomware attacks in mid-May due to Wannacry, the international ransomware attack. WannaCry only accounted for six of these reports in New Zealand.
