This preparatory step can significantly affect the success of an attack, making early detection and mitigation essential for security teams.
  • According to a report by the SANS Institute, over 90% of cyber attacks begin with reconnaissance, underscoring its prevalence in the cyber threat landscape.
  • A survey by Cybersecurity Insiders found that 65% of organizations have experienced at least one incident of cyber reconnaissance in the past year, highlighting the ongoing risk to businesses.
