Increases in Ransomware since COVID-19

“The coronavirus pandemic has sparked a massive increase in the number of cybercrime complaints flowing into the FBI these days” -Tony Ugortez, Bureau Official, FBI.

Critical Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has re-emphasized the need for effective cyber security and cyber resilience planning and testing during these times. At the same time, FBI Bureau officials have stated that IC3, the Bureau’s Internet Crime Complaint Center, is receiving 3,000 to 4,000 complaints per day, far above the typical 1,000 per day prior to the pandemic, according to a deputy assistant director of the FBI’s Cyber Division. “Not all of those are COVID-related,” she said during an Aspen Institute webinar, “but a good number of those are.”
