FBI: Texas, Rest of U.S. Experiencing More Cyber Attacks

Government Technology

(TNS) — A series of cyberattacks across Texas, including some in the Houston region, are part of a growing statewide and national trend of increasingly sophisticated groups working through computers to steal money and information, according to officials in the FBI.

In 2022, for instance, the FBI received more than 21,800 complaints of a cyberattack called a business email compromise scheme, totaling around $2.7 billion in reported losses, said Connor Hagan, a spokesperson for the FBI's office in Houston. Of that total, around 1,900 were in Texas with about $260 million in losses. That's an increase from about 1,600 victims in Texas as recently as 2020, according to FBI data.
