Hacking and cybercrime in 2021

Sebastian Artz, Head of Cyber & Information Security, Bitkom e.V.

A key US oil pipeline, the Irish healthcare system, and the world's largest meat producer have something in common. They have all recently fallen victim to cyber attacks and are thus just the tip of an iceberg in a series of attacks that have been attracting media attention for months. Experts and industry professionals have been worried about this problem for decades and continuously issued warnings, and its effects are now being felt throughout society with tremendous force, and with security policy consequences. Hacking in 2021 poses a significant threat to supply security and keeping the citizenry safe. 

What’s true for all technological progress is also true for hacking: Technology is not good or bad but always only a means to an end. And hacking does not necessarily have to be a criminal act. Basically, hackers are people who use their expertise to overcome obstacles in innovative ways. (...)

2021 - The threat wheel keeps turning

Cyber attacks and vulnerabilities 

Tobias Glemser, Expert of the German IT Security Association TeleTrusT

The threat from hackers is always changing in the same direction: it is demonstrably increasing significantly every year. More and more organisations suffer cyber attacks. Entire companies cannot be reached for days or even weeks. Ransoms, e.g. to recover company data, are paid in the millions. The hackers don't care who gets hit, from large corporations and medium-sized companies to SMEs and critical infrastructures, such as hospitals and power plants.

Nevertheless, when new vulnerabilities arise, the organisations often do nothing. The "Hafnium" vulnerability at the beginning of 2021 was not immediately resolved in all organisations, as it should have been. Random checks of local companies with between 50 and 5,000 employees less than a week after the vulnerability was made public showed that over 50% of the companies had not yet applied the patch. Despite reports on all channels, including the daily news. (...)
