Understanding the Dark Web and Malware-as-a-Service

Understanding the Dark Web and Malware-as-a-Service

The dark web has become synonymous with cybercrime, with a burgeoning underground economy for data, attack tools and malware flourishing in the parts of the internet inaccessible to the World Wide Web. Sophisticated hierarchies and support mechanisms that mimic real-world organizations have transformed the launch of a cyberattack from an art - the preserve of highly skilled hackers - to a commodity service available to anyone with minimal technical skills, who can launch an attack for as low as $5.

Malware-as-a-service and its better known cousin, ransomware-as-a-service, have successfully evolved in this environment, driven by the potential of massive financial gain and low risk.

The session addresses:

  • Building a better understanding of malware-as-a-service;
  • Mapping the risks from the dark web and responding to the challenge; and
  • Building proactive defenses.
