Plume IQ October

Founded in 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held each October, is the world’s foremost initiative aimed at promoting cybersecurity awareness and best practices.

Data analyzed from the Plume network reveals an increasing trend in cyber threat activity. From the second half of 2021 to the first half of 2023, our statistics indicate that malware attacks have increased by 35% in Japan and a staggering 80% in the United States. While total threats decreased slightly over this period in Europe, phishing incidents have increased by more than 347%.

For the first six months of 2023, Plume detected and prevented over 450 threats targeted at our customers’ homes across the United States, Japan, and Europe. Guard, Plume’s network-level security service, offers real-time cyber threat on average per month protection for smartphones, computers, and IoT devices - and is a built-in feature of Plume’s HomePass app.

Plumian riders clocked up a massive 19,090 kilometers in distance and 325,017 meters of elevation to exceed our goal and help raise over €550,000. Every Euro will help to build a school and support hundreds of children affected by the devastating earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria in February 2023. We’d like to send a huge thanks to our riders, event partners, and all who donated to support this worthy cause.
