According to the FBI’s 2022 Internet Crime Report, there were 800,944 complaints to its Internet Crime Complaint Center, which resulted in losses exceeding $10.3 billion. This substantially increased from the 351,937 complaints in 2019 and $2.7 billion in losses. Understanding the incredible losses that can come with cybersecurity threats and how they can impact your business is crucial!
