The UK, US and India are among the top countries facing the increasing threat of nation-sponsored attacks, new data reveals. According to a Thomson Reuters Labs blog, 22 countries are suspected to have sponsored cyber operations with financial backing from the state. Notable historic cases include the 2017 attack on Solarworld, an owner of cutting-edge IP and global contracts in the steel industry. The attacks were attributed to China. Vitaly Kamluk of Kaspersky Labs warned the attacks are a “growing concern”.
