Recent ransomware stats paint a worrying picture: numbers are up, villains are becoming more brazen, and victims don’t seem to be learning from past experiences and aren’t using ransomware protection strategies. 2021-2022 provides quite a snapshot of these ugly realities; get ready for some eye-opening facts!

  • Ransomware attacks rose astronomically in 2022 – a 25% increase reported by the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report.
  • Looking further into 2021, Sophos’s “The State of Ransomware” report reveals an even more staggering 78% spike in ransomware affecting 66% of organizations worldwide.
  • The FBI documented $49.2 million lost to ransomware last year – with 3,729 complaints coming through their Internet Crime Complaint Center alone!
  • Even U.S critical infrastructure sectors were not safe from these devious tech criminals: earlier this year CISA alerted that at least 14 out of 16 had been affected since 2020.
  • VirusTotal’s “Ransomware Global Context” flagged over 130 different ransomware strains making cyber criminal activities increasingly hard to contain
