The sensitive data stolen from companies during a cyberattack often ends up on darknet markets. With the rise of the cybercrime as a service business model, we observe that not only data obtained from attacks is for sale but also for the information necessary to organize that attack.
Once an attacker gains access to the infrastructure of an organization, they can then sell that access to other advanced cybercriminals, such as ransomware operators. The price for accessing potential victims’ systems is relatively inexpensive when compared to the possible damage to the targeted business. In fact, the average cost for access to a company’s systems lies between the range from $2000 to $4000. Meanwhile, such attacks result in significant financial and reputational losses to the attacked organization and may even cause suspension of work and disruption of business processes. SMBs and enterprises are both key targets of such attacks.
Yuliya Novikova and Sergey Shcherbel, security experts at Kaspersky, shed light on how a company’s data and the information on their systems is sold on darknet markets.
