It’s no secret that the bulk of ransomware attacks are financially motivated. What might be surprising, however, is precisely how like technology businesses ransomware operations have started to become. This became especially apparent in the first half of 2022 between Conti Leaks and the release of Lockbit’s bug bounty program.
The rise of Ransomware-as-a-Service may have been the first step on the road to a more professional class of ransomware gang, but the revelation of Conti having an HR team as well as other business operations teams has put a finer point on that.
