March 2023 was a noteworthy month in terms of cyber operations recorded by EuRepoC. During this period, 88 cyber operations were recorded in the database. This is 12.82% more than the previous month and 51 operations more than the average recorded activity of 37 cyber operations per month.
The average intensity of operations recorded in March 2023 is 3.1, which exceeds the historical average (2.4). The striking increase in operations since February 2023 can also be explained, above all, by the fact that EuRepoC is recording all cyber attacks against critical infrastructure targets from March 2023 onwards and no longer makes inclusion contingent on whether these activities are linked to political or governmental threat actors or victims.
