Norton Labs Releases New Consumer Cyber Safety Pulse Report

Today, Norton Labs, NortonLifeLock's global research team, launched its first quarterly Consumer Cyber Safety Pulse Report, tapping into the company's breadth of threat telemetry to reveal the top cybersecurity trends from January to March 2021. Phishing campaigns remained the number one threat to consumer Cyber Safety, with top scams relating to the pandemic, including vaccine-oriented, financial relief, and tech support scams1.

"Our renowned Norton Labs group is at the forefront of identifying and analyzing the latest trends in cybercrime, and it's clear through their analysis that cybercriminals continue to find new ways to capitalize off of the pandemic," says Darren Shou, head of technology, NortonLifeLock. "Over the next three months, we can expect scammers to tap into the gradual shift to a post-COVID state as people start to return to work, travel and engage in social activities."

Norton blocks more than 900 million threats on average every 100 days. Between January 2021 and March 2021, 49.6 million phishing attempts, 46.3 million file-based malware, 686,000 mobile-malware files and 536,137 ransomware detections were reported. During this time, the majority of scams were designed to trick consumers into sharing their personal and financial information in an attempt to steal their money.
