Microsoft Digital Defense Report finds nation state threats on rise, plus more sophisticated, harder to detect

The second annual Microsoft report on cybercrime has been released, with analysis of cybercrime, supply chain security, hybrid work and disinformation. Microsoft found a significant increase in cyberattacks, particularly from Russia (58%) and attacks on sectors of critical infrastructure soaring. Further, inexpensive attack kits are enabling more attackers, so cooperation of business and government is needed to fight this.
