Global mobile security report 2022

In 2021, the number of reported data leaks increased by 68%, reaching an all-time high that exceeded the previous record by more than 23% according to the U.S.-based Identity Theft Resource Center’s annual report.

Although some of these incidents were caused by human error, most of them were the result of cyberattacks that led to unauthorized access to private data. In most cases, these cyberattacks were carried out using information initially stolen from the mobile devices of organizations’ employees and clients, through spyware or phishing campaigns, among others.
