Manila, Philippines – Iniulat na pang-anim ang Pilipinas sa ‘most-attacked countries’ sa usapin ng web-borne threats noong 2020, batay sa ulat ng cybersecurity firm Kaspersky.

Sa datos na inilabas ng 2020 Kaspersky Security Network (KSN), natukoy sa Filipino computers ang 44,410,695 iba’t ibang internet-borne threats kung saan 42.2% ang halos infected.

Naitala ang web-borne threats sa Nepal (49.3%), Algeria (46.9%), Mongolia (44.5%), Somalia (44.0%), at Belarus (43.9%).

Sumunod naman sa Pilipinas ang Malaysia (42.1%), Brunei Darussalam (42.0%), Rwanda (42.0%), at Kenya (41.1%).

“One thing that all of us would remember very well about 2020 other than COVID-19 was the shift of major tasks online — mostly within the confines of our homes,” lahad ni Yeo Siang Tiong, general manager ng Southeast Asia sa Kaspersky.

“It is now a common scenario to see working parents juggle work and assisting kids with their online classes. The stress of finding balance has understandably affected each of us emotionally and psychologically, which created the best scenario for cybercriminals to exploit the situation.”

“It is high time for enterprises of all shapes and sizes to understand that online threats against individuals should now be considered as risks against companies. We need to remember that cybercriminals never sleep. Hence, our security solutions should be automated, intelligence-based, and proactive,” lahad pa nito. RNT/FGDC
