Ransomware and the eCrime Ecosystem

Abstract

The eCrime Ecosystem is vast and interconnected, with many Cyber Criminal Enterprises existing to support Big Game Hunting (BGH) Ransomware Operations. Notable to the past year is the pivot role that Access Brokers play in the eCrime Ecosystem, importantly, supporting a variety of eCrime Adversaries, including the most prolific Ransomware Operators, with initial access into their target environments. Also, throughout 2020 and 2021, a number of dramatic shifts have been observed in the BGH space, including the exponential surge in the adoption of the Extortion and Data Leaks tactics and the rise of Ransomware-as-a-Service. This talk strives to take a deep dive into these recent threat trends associated with Ransomware and eCrime, and offer the audience with useful insights to better defend the organisation against the spectre of Cyber Crime.
