SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WMBD) — The FBI Springfield Field Office held a round table discussion Wednesday to warn about the dangers of cyber threats and attacks.

Special Agent in Charge David Nanz, Supervisory Special Agent Regina Burris, and Pearl Technology President Dave Johnson joined members of the media to discuss where cyber attacks come from, how Illinoisans become vulnerable, and the systems in place to keep the state and country safe from bad actors.

According to SAC Nanz, there were over 9,000 complaints of cyber attacks registered in 2021, which resulted in over $7 billion in damages.

Illinois ranked as the fifth highest state to report internet crimes. Roughly 18,000 Illinoisans fell victim to cyber attacks in 2021, resulting in roughly $184 million in damages.

Types of cyber attacks include ransomware, business email compromise, and spear phishing. Motivations range from simple financial gain, to equipment hacking, to disrupting or compromising national security.

The largest perpetrators of national cyber attacks against the United States come from China, Russia, and Iran, with an unprecedented amount of attacks coming from China.
