Since the COVID-19 pandemic, ransomware has burgeoned into a multi-billion-dollar industry. As extortionists seek out larger and larger scale operations in search of an ever-multiplying bounty, more and more businesses and industries are at risk. In 2021, for the first time, attackers were successful in shutting down critical infrastructure in the U.S., including Colonial Pipeline, the East Coast’s largest gasoline, diesel, and natural gas distributor, and JBS, the world’s largest meat processor. Initial demands for payment are reaching new heights—exceeding 10 million dollars and sometimes as high as 40 to 60 million—for targets with deep pockets.2 However, threat actors aren’t just setting their sights on multinational enterprises. Plenty of cities and counties across the country have been extorted as well.
