What is the difference between:

Cybercrime would be up in 2020, higher than ever before

Vs.

Cybercrime would be up in 2020, higher than it ever has been

Sentence1 is what I always use, but sentence2 seems the same(a native English speaker used this format)

Please clarify.

Both mean the same, as before refers to all the events that have happened before this moments, and ever has been also refers to the same.
Although, I personally think that the latter put more emphasis on the meaning.
