The cyber security industry was rocked in February after a ransomware attack against the Cloud service provider Accellion.

Dozens of organisations that used the software reported incidents in one of the worst months we’ve ever recorded. We found 118 publicly recorded incidents, of which 43 were ransomware attacks.

It’s not the news we were expecting having recently reported that organisations had turned the tide on ransomware attackers – but clearly fraudsters are doubling down on their efforts.

In total, we detected 2,323,326,953 breached records. You can find the full list below, with incidents affecting UK-based organisations listed in bold.

Meanwhile, you can find detailed breakdowns of some of the more notable incidents by subscribing to our Weekly Round-up or by visiting our blog (where we have a dedicated series on phishing scams).
