Coveware から 2021年第 3四半期のランサムウェア攻撃に関するレポート
The average ransom payment amount remained relatively constant in Q3, while the median increased by over 50%. We attribute this shift to less large outlier ransom payments from a small subset of large companies, versus a higher proportion of payments coming from mid-market sized victims. Ever since the pipeline attacks this spring, we have seen statistical evidence and intelligence showing that ransomware actors are trying to avoid larger targets that may evoke a national political or law enforcement response. This shift from ‘Big Game Hunting’ to ‘Mid Game Hunting’ is personified in both the ransom amount statistics but also the victim size demographics from the quarter.
