Cybersecurity Predictions: Cybercriminals will continue to heavily invest in their businesses as new monetization channels emerge | Vumetric

Cybercriminals will continue to heavily invest in their businesses as new monetization channels emerge. During the past 3 years, the underground economy has experienced a shift in how cybercriminals are monetizing their end products, from concentrating efforts on manual transactions and listings in markets, to focusing on sales of credentials, network access and sophisticated fraud methods. Instead of selling services or data listings on an individual basis, threat actors are placing more effort into building lasting, business-like enterprises by investing more in branding, customer support and intuitive user interfaces. Drawing inspiration from legitimate online businesses, cybercriminals use automation to help move their stock off the virtual shelves and collect data to better monetize their deliverables, further expanding the cyber threat landscape
