For several years, French companies have been experiencing a significant increase in cyber-attacks, regardless of their size or industry.

The digital transformation of businesses is a real accelerator for the French economy, but it also exposes them by expanding the target area of their information systems. 

Every company has a data base that can be targeted by attackers. The first challenge is to be aware of the value of the data held and to identify which ones are crucial for the business continuity in order to secure them.

To support companies, a wide range of solutions are available on the market, ranging from simple antivirus softwares to advanced information system security management systems.

The cybersecurity cycle consists of three distinct phases:

  • Prevent
  • Protect
  • Restore

Docaposte, a leading player in digital trust, supports you in each of these three phases with solutions from its "cybersecurity range":

  • SnipR: Through non-intrusive scanning, it allows the analysis of an organization's attack surface.
  • TankR Access & Tank’R: These solutions enable local and offline cyber backups of your critical data assets for your business.

What are the targets of cyber-attacks?

  • All organizations are affected: private companies, public agencies, associations...
  • All sectors are targeted: local governments, healthcare, digital, automotive, transportation, agri-food... even the cybersecurity industry itself.
  • All sizes are targeted: micro-businesses, SMEs, ETI, large companies.
  • The primary targets are SMEs, representing 69% of attacks targeting businesses. Healthcare organizations are also heavily targeted, with 89% of them experiencing a data breach in the past two years.
  • Therefore, every organization, regardless of its specific nature, is vulnerable and represents a potential target.

The risks of cyberattacks incurred by VSEs/SMEs

  1. Financial impacts: €184,000 on average for a company with more than 50 employees.
  2. Legal and regulatory impacts: only if the cyber-attack was partly facilitated due to non-compliance with existing cybersecurity laws and regulations.
  3. Impacts on image and reputation: loss of trust from customers, employees, and partners.
  4. Organizational impacts: The reorganization of the company's IT system and processes following this attack can be substantial as everything needs to be rebuilt.

Why are SMEs the preferred targets ?

  • They are not aware of the risks

  • Attacking a smaller organization is easier and faster (65% of SMEs have no data protection policy)

  • They do not take measures to protect themselves

  • They serve as entry points for hackers targeting larger enterprises

  • The customer data they possess has value (€0.40 to €8 for identity data, €12 to €1100 for banking details/credentials)

What are the different threats ?

The most common types of cyber attacks

  • Data retrieval through deception. It involves impersonating a trustworthy source in an email or SMS to deceive victims and obtain confidential information. It is often used as an entry point to the system for further attacks like ransomware or banking fraud. It accounts for 90% of attacks.

  • A malicious software that encrypts and holds data hostage. Ransomware encrypts and locks files on the information system and demands a ransom for decryption. It represents the majority of attacks. To correct the impact of a ransomware attack, French companies spend an average of €913,000.

  • The scam of fake wire transfer orders (FWTO) refers to a type of fraud that uses persuasion, threats, or various pressures to trick victims into making unplanned fund transfers. Sometimes presented as coming from a CEO and marked as "urgent and confidential," it is also known as "CEO fraud."
