The following is the Cyber crime report 2020 From IC3 recommended by recordtrend.com. And this article belongs to the classification: research report, network security.
In 2020, criminals will use phishing, deception, blackmail and other means to cheat against the most vulnerable groups in society.
The Internet Crime Complaint Center of the United States provides the public with a reliable source of information about cyber crime activities, and when the public suspects that they are cyber victims, they can directly report crimes to them.
In 2020, IC3 received 791790 complaints from the US public, setting a new record and reporting losses of more than $4.1 billion. Compared with 2019, the total number of complaints increased by 69%. Commercial e-mail compromise (BEC) remains the most expensive: 19369 complaints cost about $1.8 billion. Phishing scams are also prominent: 241342 complaints brought losses of more than $54 million. The number of complaints about extortion software also continued to increase, with 2474 reported in 2020.
Public reporting is critical to IC3’s mission and success. Submitting cyber crime complaints to ic3.gov can not only help the U.S. FBI deal with specific complaints, but also provide support and help for the victims. It can also help us find and investigate the responsibility of cyber criminals, so as to prevent other criminal acts.
IC3 continues to strengthen its relationship with other members of the industry and law enforcement to reduce financial losses caused by BEC fraud. Through the recovery asset team, IC3 and its partners have successfully frozen about $380 million of the $462 million loss reported in 2020, with a success rate of nearly 82%. In addition, IC3 has a recovery and investigation development team that can assist financial and law enforcement investigators in disbanding criminal organizations that illegally transfer and transfer funds.
IC3 encourages us consumers to initiate complaints and contact the local FBI office to report malicious cyber crime activities, so as to jointly build security and confidence in the digital world.
