From Cybercrime Zero to 'Hero' - Now Faster Than EverCybercrime Service Economy Keeps Driving Easier Profits, Says Blueliv's Liv Rowley
No advanced hacking skills required: The burgeoning cybercrime-as-a-service economy continues to make it easy for aspiring cybercriminals to procure highly automated, easy-to-use and effective attack tools to fuel illicit profits, says Liv Rowley, a threat intelligence analyst at Blueliv.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA 2020, Rowley also discusses:
- Cybercrime-as-a-service trends: No-distribute anti-virus scanners, the rise of resellers as well as specialization;
- How criminals use customer service to differentiate their offerings;
- When English- and Russian-language cybercrime innovations will spread to other regions.
Rowley is a threat intelligence analyst at Blueliv, where she focuses on researching the cybercriminal underground, including co-authoring the firm's latest "Dark Commerce" report on the cybercrime industry and its business models. She previously worked for U.S.-based threat intelligence startup Flashpoint.
