Threat intelligence firm Analyst1 has warned that, as cyber criminals try to avoid the attention of law enforcement agencies, they are likely to target small businesses with ransomware attacks in 2022. Researcher Chris Fiormonti comments on the Analyst1 blog that “Instead of going after the high-profile attacks since the activity brings unwanted attention from the federal government, they will likely target smaller companies that will allow them to stay under the radar of the federal government.”
