Experts from Check Point revealed during the CPX conference in Vienna that cybercrime will cost the world $9.5 trillion in 2024. If it were measured as a country, cybercrime would be the third-largest economy in the world, after the USA and China. Last year, the global cost of damages caused by cybercrime was $18 million per minute and will grow by 15 percent annually over the next two years, reaching $10.5 trillion annually by 2025.

According to the latest security report published by Check Point Research, cybercriminals are using increasingly sophisticated techniques, including exploiting zero-day vulnerabilities, to conduct further attacks for ransom (ransomware). 

Meanwhile, Poland, which according to Check Point experiences over 1,000 cyberattacks on organizations per week, has become one of the most attacked countries by DDoS methods.

"The last few weeks indicate that we are the most attacked country in the world," Gen. Karol Molenda said.

"Our analysts, based on data from partners, have defined and noticed that – in terms of one type of attack, namely the so-called DDoS attack – the last few weeks indicate that we are the most attacked country in the world," the expert revealed.
