State of Cyber Threat Intelligence: Australia Edition

Flashpoint’s risk landscape report shows percentage of stolen Australian credentials in 2022 increases by 99%.

Threat actors are actively targeting Australia, using a wide range of tactics, tools, and procedures to steal over 50 million stolen credentials from Australian organisations. 2022 was a prolific year of cyberattacks in Australia, with the Optus and Medibank attacks still fresh in the nation’s mind.

Cyber incidents like these have spurred the Australian government’s intention to appoint a Coordinator for Cyber Security—with Australia now ranking first among global peers for cyber progress. However, Flashpoint has recorded many more successful cyberattacks suffered by Australian organisations—with notable threat actors and Advanced Persistent Threat groups behind them.

Flashpoint is seeing that similar cyber events are on track to increase further into 2023.  Therefore, Australian organisations need to know the current state of cyber threat intelligence and how to fight the perpetual cycle of cybercrime.

In this report we examine:

  • How threat actors are compromising Australian organisations—and what they are doing with illegally obtained data
  • The state of the Australian cyber threat landscape and how it directly impacts data breaches, ransomware, and other forms of cyberattacks
  • How Australia fits into the global cyber threat landscape and what organisations can do to protect themselves
