A cyber threat/cyberattack is any type of offensive maneuver that targets computer information systems, infrastructures, computer networks, or personal computer devices.
The global cyber threat continues to evolve at a rapid pace, with a rising number of data breaches each year. With the scale of the cyber threat set to continue to rise, the International Data Corporation predicts that worldwide spending on cyber-security solutions will reach a massive $133.7 billion by 2022.
This problem brought us to wonder how many attacks are there now, from where to where? Here cyber threat maps join to play.

First of all, anyone can look at a cyber threat map and understand something about current attacks. For laypeople, it might just be an understanding of how prevalent these attacks are.
For pros, a cyber threat map can provide data that can lead to the discovery of a potential new attack. Even though these maps don’t really show cyber attacks in real-time, they give you information, and a cybersecurity pro can never have too much of that.
