COVID-19 News: FBI Reports 300% Increase in Reported Cybercrimes

  • The FBI’s IC3, or its Internet Crime Complaint Center, has reported a major increase in received cybersecurity complaints each day, according to The Hill — who goes on to explain that the number of cybersecurity complaints went up from 1,000 complaints every day, to over 3,000 to 4,000 per day since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • While we can’t say for sure whether there was an unreported massive data breach that caused the increase in COVID-19 cyber-attacks, we can definitely assume that these reported data breaches paved the way for quite a few of them.
