Asia Pacific is more likely to be targeted by advanced cyber attacks compared to the world as a whole, according to a recent research.


FireEye Labs said that while attention-seeking hackers are trying to attract as much press as possible, organized and resourceful cyber criminals and nation-state threat actors are capable of more advanced attacks meant to steal information or sabotage critical infrastructure, and can often go unnoticed for long periods of time.

According to the report, the most often-targeted by advanced attackers in Asia were financial services, national government, high-tech, chemicals, manufacturing, mining, services, consulting, higher education, telecom, energy, utilities, petroleum, entertainment/media, and sub-national and local government.

FireEye Labs list of the top 10 most targeted countries in Asia during the past year are:

1. South Korea,
2. Japan,
3. Taiwan,
4. Thailand,
5. Hong Kong,
6. Philippines,
7. India,
8. Australia,
9. Pakistan,
10. Singapore.
