Hoosiers may be wising up to cyberattacks ploys.

A new study by CCTV Camera World says Indiana cyberattack victims lost the fifth-least amount of money to such criminals in the nation.

It’s still an issue, with an average of more than $2,700 per victim, but the state finished 47th among the 50 states and Washington DC. By comparison, victims in North Dakota topped the list with an average loss per victim of just under $34,000.

The data on the state of cybercrime in America uses data from the past ten years and divides total money lost by the number of victims.

A record $4.2 billion dollars was lost to cybercriminals in 2020, up from $3.5 billion in 2019.
