The Economic Impact of Cybercrime

As we enter 2024, we face a reality where the cost of cybercrime is projected to reach $9.5 trillion per year. This translates to $793 billion per month, $182.5 billion per week, $26 billion per day, $1 billion per hour, $18 million per minute, and $302,000 per second. This data from Cybersecurity Ventures shows the enormous economic impact of cyber attacks and raises a fundamental question: How much could cybercrime cost your organization?

Ransomware: A Constantly Evolving Threat

Ransomware represents one of the most serious cyber threats of 2024, with projected costs to victims of approximately 265 billion dollars annually by 2031. This increase is estimated at 30% year-over-year growth. High-impact attacks like those suffered by MGM ResortsCaesar’s EntertainmentMOVEitRoyal Mail Capita, and the City of Dallas demonstrate the destructive power and reach of ransomware. These attacks cause not only extensive financial damage but also significant disruptions to business operations and public services, as their success highlights the need for companies to adopt advanced security measures.

SMEs: Easy Targets and Devastating Consequences

More than half of cyber attacks affect small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), with 60% of these closing within six months after an attack. Considering that SMEs represent a significant part of the global economy, their vulnerability to cyber attacks can have devastating consequences on the economy and employment. These companies must adopt effective backup solutions to protect their data and ensure business continuity.
