With the rise of cybercrime as a service business model, the information necessary to organize an attack is in demand among cybercriminals. Kaspersky’s experts analyzed nearly 200 posts on the dark web offering to buy information for initial access to companies’ systems. The average cost for access to a big company’s systems lies between $2000 and $4000, which is relatively inexpensive compared to the potential damage it could cause targeted businesses.
