Stolen Data's Black Market


SEPTEMBER 7, 2006 | Computer crime is changing, experts agree. The Web-wide attack, designed to prove the hacker's proficiency, is out. The targeted attack -- designed to make a buck for the hacker or insider who initiates it -- is in, in, in.

So who's targeting your enterprise? And what's your data worth? Many IT people may be surprised at the answers, experts say.

The "black market" for stolen computer data is growing by leaps and bounds, according to experts who study computer crime and corporate espionage. "Before 1998, about 90 to 95 percent of all intrusions were done by individuals hacking out of curiosity," says Chris Pierson, founder of the cybersecurity and cyberliability practice at Lewis and Roca LLP, a Phoenix law firm. "That's entirely flipped now. I'd say 75 to 85 percent of all malicious attacks are coordinated by some organized group, even if it's a very loose organization."

First define malicious attack. That term usually includes viruses/trojans sent in email just as much as someone targetting a network...
