Evolution of Cyber Crime in the UK

From Heartbleed and Shellshock to the Target breach and the Sony hack, cyberattacks are daily news, and yet security and compliance are often not considered as a fundamental requirement when adopting cloud computing strategies.

From Heartbleed and Shellshock to the Target breach and the Sony hack, cyberattacks are daily news, and yet security and compliance are often not considered as a fundamental requirement when adopting cloud computing strategies.

Cyber crime is continuously evolving as criminals identify new ways of making money from the digital revolution. However, there is no such thing as a new crime. The techniques that we see criminals use and abuse today have their antecedents in the recent past as well as antiquity. By examining the evolution of how information has been recognised as valuable, and how techniques have evolved to protect information we can better understand how techniques will need to continue to evolve to protect against the latest criminal attacks.

The widespread adoption of cloud infrastructure exposes organisations to new threats but presents new opportunities for attackers. Indeed, criminals have enthusiastically embraced the cloud as a platform for their own activities and developed "crime-as-a-service".
