Secureworks Annual State of Cybercrime Report
With cybercriminals becoming more advanced than ever, Secureworks Counter Threat Unit (CTU) researchers launched a 2018 State of Cybercrime Report to expose cyber-threats, provide standard and applicable techniques, and identify the markets that are fueling the economy of the sophisticated cybercrime business.
Key findings in the report include:
- Only a small subset of professional criminal actors operating like businesses are responsible for the bulk of cybercrime-related damage.
- The lines between nation-state and cybercriminal actors continues to blur, with cybercriminals employing tools and techniques as sophisticated, targeted and insidious as most nation-state actors, and nation-states using criminal networks to help achieve their objectives.
- Contrary to some reports, there has been no significant decrease in ransomware; instead ransomware is now more sophisticated than ever.
- Though some think cryptocurrency mining is on the decline, it actually remains an extremely popular way for criminals to monetize access to infected computers.
