As the number of high-profile cyber incidents continues to increase, cyber extortion incidents also continue to increase. Incredibly costly, both financially and for a firm's reputation, extortion incidents can encompass criminals threatening to expose stolen confidential electronic data or shut down a website.

Though the exact number of cyber extortion incidents annually is somewhat unknown as many such incidents are kept private, industry experts believe that these losses do account for a large segment of cybercrime incidents each year.
