This increase coincides with the UN’s COP28 climate conference and similar surges were seen during COP26 and COP27. The rise in attacks may be linked to high-profile environmental events, highlighting a growing intersection between environmental issues and cybersecurity. Other significant trends include the usage of DDoS attacks in political or military conflicts, with increased activity seen during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and Hamas’ attack on Israel.
