Ransomware During COVID-19

  • Ransomware made global news headlines this week when a major ransomware attack was thwarted against Tesla.
  • In total, the average ransomware payment for the second quarter of 2020 was $178,254, a 60 percent increase from the first quarter. The rise coincided with the arrival of “big game hunting.” Previously, ransomware attacks were dominated by spray-and-pray attacks, which were more opportunistic in nature.
