This investigation explored the topic of cybercrime and its relation to disaster events of natural or man-made origin within the United States from the years 2001 to 2016. By analyzing available public data from both the Federal Bureau of Investigacion (F.B.I.) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (F.E.M.A.), using descriptive statistics to find evidence of any possible correlation between disaster events and cybercrime. The results suggest that disaster cybercrime and cybercrime are loosely related, with the exceptions of regions with an already higher risk of disasters and cybercrime such as the states of Texas and California.
