Cybercrime as a Service

Cybercrime as a Service

During the last decade, cyber crime has evolved to a profitable business with hundreds of millions of “profits” made. Whereas in the past one needed to be a IT and cybersecurity expert for launching a “successful” and profitable attack, today a new model has appeared where the “highly specialized” cyber-criminals offer their knowledge and tools as any normal commercial web service. As a result any non-expert is able to hire, make use and access, powerful tools and services and launch a highly sophisticated attack to any target wished.
A full and active market of zero-day exploits and innovative attack methods has been developed, based on modern web commercial models.
