Are Ransomware-as-a-Service Groups in Decline?

The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report discusses how ransomware-as-a-service groups are shifting their business models, how investigators battling cybercrime have been hindered by GDPR, and how employees consider workplace "choice" a key factor for job satisfaction.

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

  • ISMG's Mathew Schwartz discuss whether the decline and fall of ransomware-as-a-service groups is imminent;
  • Alan Brill of Kroll describe how "whois data" - an essential tool for investigators battling cybercrime - has changed since GDPR came into effect, and not for the better;
  • CEO Clar Rosso of ISC(2) outline new findings from a member poll that looks at how organizations are changing remote work policies in 2022 and what it means for worker satisfaction.

The ISMG Security Report appears weekly on this and other ISMG websites. Don't miss the Aug. 11 and Aug. 19 editions, which respectively discuss how cyberattacks and operations tied to the Russia-Ukraine war continue to affect civilians and how ransomware groups' shakedown tactics are evolving.
