MORE than 13,000 cyber incidents have been registered in Spain during 2014.

The National Cryptology Centre (CCN) has managed 80 per cent more incidents in 2014 than the previous year.

Out of those, an 11.6 per cent were considered to be of high or critical risk, which means those cyber attacks which affect the private information of organisations.


The impact and sophistication of the attacks has also increased, with hackers being able to access public administration systems and other key institutions such as energy and pharmaceutical companies or military facilities amongst others.

This information was revealed at the eighth edition of the conference for Technological Patrimony Protection.

The discussions revolved around cyber crimes and the large economic losses that they cause each year.
