It used to take tremendous effort and skill for hackers to hack… but cyber criminals, like everyone else, have had to adapt. And they really have.

As a terrifying example, login credentials for organisations are now traded online for only a few pounds each. Cybercriminals operating illegal ‘Ransomware as a Service’ businesses help run the whole attack, including providing the decryption methods and handling the ransom payment, for a share of the profits.

And even with all that going on, low-level cybercriminals can now easily perform ransomware attacks, meaning smaller companies with less security are very much in the crosshairs.
