In August of 2020, just five months after the onset of COVID-19, hackers were waging 4,000 successful ransomware attacks per day on unsuspecting businesses. It was a 400% increase from pre-COVID-19 numbers, according to the FBI. Today, the attacks persist and tend to surge even more around the holidays. In fact, CBS News reported that up to 1,500 businesses in the U.S. and other parts of the world were impacted by a ransomware attack over the 2021 Fourth of July weekend.
