Analysis: Disrupting the Cybercrime-as-a-Service Model

The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report features an analysis of the cybercrime-as-a-service model and how law enforcement could potentially disrupt it.

In this report, you’ll hear (click on player beneath image to listen):

  • ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz describe how cybercriminals continue to rely on the services of initial access brokers and whether the cybercrime-as-a-service model can be dismantled;
  • ISMG’s Jeremy Kirk discuss how T-Mobile USA has been hit by a massive data breach;
  • Trend Micro’s Rik Ferguson outline a new initiative, Respect in Security, which aims work against all forms of harassment in the workplace.

The ISMG Security Report appears on this and other ISMG websites on Fridays. Don’t miss the Aug. 6 and Aug. 13 editions, which respectively discuss the lies ransomware operators tell and how self-driving tractors are at risk of being hacked.
