In the United States, financial institutions are required to file suspicious activity reports to help the government detect money laundering or other criminal activities – including security breaches. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network’s (FinCEN) analysis indicates that ransomware continues to pose a significant threat to the United States critical infrastructure sectors, businesses, and the public. In 2021, financial institutions filed 1,489 incidents related to ransomware – nearly $1.2 billion in likely ransomware-related payments, more than double the amount from 2020. According to FinCEN, the amounts within its analysis include extortion amounts, attempted transactions, and payments that were not made (https://nnw.fm/ZAdUi).
