Global Cyber Crime Hits $600 Billion–Gets Its Own aaS Category
New technologies and techniques are changing the cybercrime landscape in a significant way, creating new challenges for those entrusted with protecting networks and data.
For one thing, you don’t have to be much of a hacker–or even a hacker at all–to be a cybercriminal. Easily available (and affordable) attack and exploit kits will do a lot of the work for you. And if you don’t want to go that far, a budding cybercriminal can just outsource the job via Cybercrime-as-a-Service, a growing sector of the underworld that is established enough to warrant the CaaS acronym, just like Infrastructure-as-a-Service and its brethren.
