Since the beginning of the year, Sberbank has managed to save 37,4 billion rubles from scammers. Last year, this amount was 39,7 billion rubles.

As told "Izvestia" Deputy Chairman of the Board of SberBank Stanislav Kuznetsov, there is now a clear trend towards an increase in economic losses from cyber threats. If in 2019 they amounted to 2,5 trillion rubles, then this year the damage is projected at 3,5-3,6 trillion.

Fundamentally new schemes did not appear, however, during the pandemic, scammers used many variations of the old methods: advertisements for the sale of coronavirus tests, compensation from the state or remote work, “fixing payments” for goods or services that were not provided in the end.

During the pandemic, the volume of malicious email traffic also increased - from 12% in early March to 60% by mid-April. Overall, the number of cyberattacks when working remotely in the second quarter increased by 57% compared to the first.

Telephone fraud continues to grow. Since the beginning of the year, SberBank has recorded almost 2,9 million customer requests for fraudulent attempts. Compared to 2019, their volume has doubled.
