RaaS and the Rise of the Ransomware Extortion Ecosystem
Ransomware as a service (RaaS) has made extortion more critical than ever. If ransomware actors can’t extort ransom payment from victims in “traditional" means, they have to focus on new ways of blackmailing. This doesn't just mean stealing files and posting them on an extortion site — instead, ransomware actors have created a whole new extortion ecosystem.
While the success of RaaS mimics the success of ransomware, a lot of the success of the RaaS model has to do with extortion. The reality is, the creation of the extortion ecosystem has created a symbiotic relationship between RaaS operators, the dark web forums they advertise on, security press, and security researchers.
Watch this on-demand webinar to see Dmitry Smilyanets, expert threat intelligence analyst, and Allan Liska, expert ransomware researcher, share insight into how the growth of RaaS offerings has helped accelerate ransomware attacks, and what it means for your organisation.
