Ransomware gangs are losing interest in American businesses


As the United States loses its allure, ransomware operators focus on specific regions and industries.

According to a new NordLocker report, while companies in the United States remain the most popular target for ransomware gangs, other regions are becoming increasingly popular.

The researchers discovered that 876 ransomware attacks occurred in American businesses in 2022, down from 1,237 the previous year, by analyzing publicly available data on ransomware attacks that occurred between 2020 and 2023.
