SME ISAC Task Force

In a united effort to tackle the rising cyber threats in Europe, the European DIGITAL SME Alliance introduces SME ISAC (Information Sharing and Analysis Centre). This initiative plays a vital role in helping SMEs navigate the evolving cyber threat landscape and meet the growing demand for cybersecurity expertise.
SME ISAC initiated its activities with the release of the ‘Ransomware Landscape in Europe’ covering 21 European countries. This report has yielded invaluable insights into the realm of cyber threats, including:

– A significant 57% surge in cyberattacks, with a notable concentration in France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.
– Over the course of the first quarter of 2023, a total of 36 distinct ransomware groups were identified, with their targets spanning various sectors and global corporations.
– The escalation of ransomware attacks persisted into Q2, as the report identified a total of 43 groups.
– In the second quarter of 2023, the report recorded an astonishing 155,683 phishing campaigns.
– During the first quarter of 2023, a total of 7,772 new Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs) were published.

The significant increases identified in the report serve as compelling reminders of the need for cross-border collaboration in combatting digital threats. SME ISAC plays a pivotal role in fostering this spirit, operating as an inclusive community for experts from both the private and public sectors to share knowledge, resources, and enhance their visibility.
